New Delhi [India] : Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday extended his greetings to the Indian Coast Guard on its Raising Day.

The Indian Coast Guard (ICG) is celebrating its 48th Raising Day on Thursday.

‘On the 48th raising day of @indiacoastguard, I convey my best wishes and greetings to all their personnel and staff. Their dedication to maritime safety, national security and care for the environment is unparalleled. India salutes them for their unwavering vigilance and service,’ PM Modi posted on X.

Earlier on January 28, the Indian Coast Guard provided towing assistance to a fishing boat that was adrift 50 nautical miles southwest of Minicoy Island in Lakshadweep since Thursday due to an engine breakdown.

‘@IndiaCoastGuard ship Samarth provided towing assistance to Indian Fishing boat Arul Matha(IND-TN-12-MM-5707) which was adrift 50 NM South-West of #Minicoy Island since 25 Jan due to an engine breakdown,’ the Indian Coast Guard wrote on ‘X’.

Indian Coast Guard’s steadfast resolve and swift response in assisting fishermen at sea have earned them recognition as Sentinel of the Sea amongst fishermen, which is in line with its motto, ‘Vayam Rakshamah’.
