As Rafales land, PM says no virtue like defending the nation | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Moments after the first batch of five Rafale jets touched down in Amabala on Wednesday afternoon after covering 7,000 km since they took off from France on Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi greeted their arrival with a Sanskrit shloka, which said there was no virtue like protecting the nation, no vow and ‘yagna’ like defence of the nation.
Concluding his tweet with “swagatam” (welcome), the PM also shared the IAF’s motto — ‘Nabhah sparsham diptam’ (touch the sky with glory).
Home minister Amit Shah termed the arrival of the Rafale jets a “game changer”. “Rafale touchdown is a historic day for our vigorous Indian Air Force and a proud moment for India,” he said in a tweet.
Shah said, “Induction of these next generation aircraft is a testimony to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s resolve to make India a powerful and secure nation. The Modi government is committed to build on India’s defence capabilities. These are the world’s most powerful machines, capable of thwarting any challenge in the sky.”
Congratulating defence minister Rajnath Singh, the IAF and the country, Shah thanked the PM for providing this unprecedented strength to the IAF. “From speed to weapon capabilities, Rafale is way ahead. I am sure these world class fighter jets will prove to be a game changer. I am sure Rafale will help our air warriors to safeguard our skies,” he said.
