PM meets ISRO delegation after successful launch of GSLV-D5 and Mars Orbiter Spacecraft

Prime Minister interacted today with Chairman ISRO along with the Project Directors and key Executives of the recent 8 Indian Space Missions that were successfully executed since July 2013. He complimented the entire ISRO fraternity for their magnificent achievements. 

Prime Minister stated that the successful launch of GSLV-D5 flight, in January 2014, has been a landmark achievement towards self reliance in the complex cryogenic technology that is paramount to launching heavier satellites from India, apart from establishing confidence in our GSLV. 

Further Prime Minister wished all success for the forthcoming crucial operations of Mars Orbiter spacecraft and stated that this Mission will mark the beginning of a new glorious chapter for India in Space explorations. 

Excerpts from the Prime Minister’s remarks at the meeting with ISRO Project Executives:-

“Those involved in space science research, the engineers, the scientists, they all make us feel very proud of the role that space scientists, space engineers are playing in ensuring that space technology becomes truly an instrument of national development and also our security concern to the extent that they require the support of the space program. 

You are doing wonderfully well and I would like to complement and congratulate each one of you and all those who are engaged in these nation building activities. 

Space has become an instrument of national development in a manner which was never envisaged some 2-3 decades ago. 

That you have risen to the occasion is something which makes the nation feel very proud of your role. So my very best wishes my congratulations, you have done exceedingly well but as I often say the best is yet to come and you have my very best wishes to scale new heights.”
