Every Indian is immensely proud today, says PM Modi

‘Lunar programme will get boost thanks to Chandrayaan-2’
The launch of Chandrayaan-2 illustrates the prowess of Indian scientists and the determination of 130 crore countrymen to scale new frontiers of science, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Monday. Soon after the launch, the PM took to Twitter to hail the success and also sent a congratulatory audio message to those involved in the launch. He said every Indian is immensely proud today. “Thanks to Chandrayaan, India’s lunar programme will get a substantial boost,” Mr. Modi tweeted. The Congress on Monday recalled that Jawahar Lal Nehru’s visionary leadership laid the foundation to have a world class institution like the ISRO. “Congratulations Team ISRO for the successful launch of Chandrayaan-2,” tweeted the official handle of the Congress party. “This is a good time to remember the visionary move of India’s first PM Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru to fund space research through INCOSPAR in 1962 which later became ISRO. “And also Dr. Manmohan Singh for sanctioning the Chandrayan2 project in 2008,” it added.
