Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday wished Narendra Modi “Happy World Theatre day” hours after the prime minister announced that India has become the fourth country to execute low-orbit satellite destruction in space. “Well done DRDO, extremely proud of your work. I would also like to wish the PM a very happy World Theatre Day,” tweeted Gandhi.
In his address to the nation, earlier in the day, the prime minister announced that India had demonstrated anti-satellite missile capability by shooting down a live satellite. “India has established its name as a space superpower. On March 27, some time ago, India achieved something remarkable. India shot down a low-orbit satellite in three minutes. With Mission Shakti, India is now the fourth nation in the world to be a Space Superpower,” PM Modi said.
Well done DRDO, extremely proud of your work.
I would also like to wish the PM a very happy World Theatre Day.
