PM to visit INS Vikramaditya

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to visit the newly-acquired INS Vikramaditya aircraft carrier next week, sources said Saturday.

They said the prime minister expressed a desire to visit the ship and the Indian Navy is making arrangements for this.

Modi is expected to be on the carrier off the western coast for a few hours, though the details are yet to be worked out, the sources said.

The INS Vikramaditya is the most powerful symbol of India's military reach and has the capability to undertake strike missions in any part of the world.
