Congress credits Jawaharlal Nehru for the successful launch of Chandrayaan2, gets ridiculed on social media

The credit for INCOSPAR largely goes to Vikram Sarabhai, the father of the Indian Space Program.

Even before Chandrayaan-2 entered its orbit around the Earth, the Congress party hailed Jawaharlal Nehru for the glorious achievement of the Indian scientists. While its customary salute to Nehru was only to be expected, the party also threw its salutations to Manmohan Singh for sanctioning the space mission in 2008.

In reality, however, the Chandrayaan-2 mission was delayed by the Congress party, according to the former chief of ISRO himself. G Madhavan Nair had asserted that the Chandrayaan-2 mission could have been carried out long ago but the “political decision” of the then UPA government to push the “Mangalyaan” venture with an eye on the 2014 Lok Sabha election caused the delay. The credit for INCOSPAR, too, largely goes to Vikram Sarabhai, the father of the Indian Space Program.

As expected, the Congress party is being subject to abject mockery due to obsessive desire to credit Nehru for literally every Indian achievement.

People also pointed out the fact that Vikram Sarabhai deserves much more credit than any politician for the success of the Indian Space Program.

It is customary for the Congress party to claim credit for every achievement that the citizens of this country strive hard to achieve. Even when India had announced its anti-satellite missile, the Congress party had claimed credit for it despite the fact that it was their own government which hadn’t given clearance for the project. A former DRDO chief, in fact, credited the Modi government for giving them the go-ahead to build the missile.
