India Successfully Test-fires BrahMos Missile From Sukhoi-30MKI Fighter Jet

New Delhi, Nov 21: In a first, India on Wednesday successfully test-fired BrahMos supersonic cruise missile from Sukhoi-30MKI fighter jet. The lethal combo of BrahMos missile and Sukhoi fighter jet will give Indian defence forces a much needed advantage in case of a conflict.

The BrahMos cruise missile travels at a speed three times that of sound at Mach 2.8, while the Sukhoi jet has a cruising range of 3,000 km.  The airforce version of BrahMos missile, developed jointly by India and Russia, is considered to be the fastest in the world. It has a strike range of range of 290 km and can carry conventional warhead up to 300 kg.

Congratulating DRDO and BrahMos team for the missile launch, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharama described the feat as historic.

“India creates a world record and completes Supersonic Cruise Missile Triad by successfully testing #BRAHMOS #ALCM from Indian Air Force Sukhoi-30MKI fighter aircraft. Smt @nsitharaman congratulates Team Brahmos & @DRDO_India for this historic achievement,” Sitharaman tweeted.

Shatrughan Sinha questions Modi, Big B for silence on ‘Padmavati’

Mumbai: Actor-politician Shatrughan Sinha has questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi and megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s silence over the “burning” issue of the film “Padmavati”.

“As ‘Padmavati’ becomes a burning controversy, people are asking why the legendary Amitabh Bachchan, most versatile Aamir Khan and most popular Shah Rukh Khan have no comments. And how come our I&B Minister or our most popular Honourable PM (according to PEW – American think tank PEW poll) are maintaining stoic silence. High time!” Shatrughan tweeted on Wednesday.

He also said that he will speak about the controversy keeping in mind the interest of filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali and the sensitivity of the Rajputs.

“As for me, I would and should speak on ‘Padmavati’ issue only after the ‘great filmmaker, producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali’ speaks up. I speak only when I am spoken to and I will speak keeping in mind the interests of the filmmaker as well as the sensitivity, valour, loyalty of the great Rajputs,” he added.

In “Padmavati”, actor Ranveer Singh plays Delhi Sultan Alauddin Khilji, which Bhansali says is a tribute to the valour of Rajput queen Padmavati, played by Deepika Padukone.

A BJP leader has announced a reward of Rs 10 crore for beheading Bhansali and Deepika.
