Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday embarked on INS Vikramaditya, India’s largest warship aircraft carrier. This is his first outing on a military asset.

After arriving in Goa around 10 am, the PM was received at the INS Hansa naval base by Navy Chief Admiral R K Dhowan and given a ceremonial guard of honour. He then flew out to the warship sailing off the Goa coast.

Modi enthusiastically boarded the MiG 29K as a naval officer briefed him about the fighter jet.

He watched high-speed manoeuvres by the western fleet ships. However, because of heavy rainfall the demonstrations were halted and Modi was ushered inside INS Vikramaditya.
