Sindhudurg: India is setting bigger targets for itself and is utilising its full potential to achieve those targets, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Monday as he extended wishes to the members of the Indian Navy on the occasion of Navy Day. Speaking at the Navy Day celebrations in Maharashtra’s Sindhudurg district, the Prime Minister said that Maratha empire founder Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj understood the importance of Navy for nation.
Earlier today, the Prime Minister unveiled the statue of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj at Rajkot Fort in Sindhudurg.
He also paid tribute to the rich maritime heritage of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj who constructed several coastal and sea forts, including the Sindhudurg Fort. Prime Minister Modi also witnessed the operational demonstration by Indian Navy on the occasion of Navy Day.
The Navy Day was celebrated at the iconic Sindhudurg Fort, which was built by the Maratha King Shivaji between AD 1664 and 1667. The Maratha King laid the foundation of the fort in 1664. The fort was built in three years. Spread over 48 acres, the fort is the only place with the footprint and hand impression of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. These impressions were taken in lime at the time of the forts’ construction.
Salute to our Navy personnel for their steadfast dedication and indomitable spirit in safeguarding the Motherland.
