The Prime Minister praising the moon mission on 'Mann Ki Baat' said, “We should trust our talents and capacities; we should have faith in them. You will be glad to know that Chandrayaan II is 'Indian' to the core. It is thoroughly Indian in heart and spirit. It is completely a swadeshi, home grown mission. This mission has proved beyond doubt, once again, that when it comes to attempting an endeavour in new age, cutting edge areas, with innovative zeal, our scientists are second to none. They are the best… they are world class.”
“The way our scientists rectified technical issues in record time, burning the midnight oil, is in itself an exemplary, unparalleled task. The world watched the Tapasya, the awesome perseverance of our scientists.”
“I fervently hope that the Chandrayaan II mission will inspire our youth towards Science and Innovation. After all, Science is the path to progress. We are now expectantly waiting for the month of September, when Lander Vikram and Rover Pragyan will land on Lunar surface,” PM Modi said on his radio talk show.
He added that Chandrayaan-2 is a mission that is special in many ways: not only will it lead to a better understanding of the Moon on our part, but we will be able to collect detailed information and knowledge.
