Jammu, September 24, (Scoop News)-In a high spirited meeting organized at party headquarters by BJP Jammu West District President Rajesh Gupta, party activists applauded and congratulated Indian Space Scientists on the successful entry of Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) in Mars Orbit. The leaders, in addition, while applauding space scientists also congratulated Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the successful conduct of MOM. They also joyously greeted the Union MoS, Science & Technology and Space Research Dr. Jitendra Singh, the son of the soil, who is presently heading the Ministry.
Leader of legislative party Ashok Khajuria, on this occasion, said that it is indeed a landmark achievement as India has entered into a group of world’s top technologically advanced nations and has been achieving one success after the other in the field of space research and progammes. It has made India the first country in the world to successfully send a spacecraft to Mars on its very maiden attempt. He added that it is very gratifying and worthy of being proud of the fact that the space orbiter has been launched into space by indigenous launch vehicle PSLV and not by a European launch vehicle.
State General Secretary (Org.) Ashok Kaul said that India’s ISRO has become the fourth space agency in the world to reach Mars, after the Russian space agency, USA’s NASA and the European Space Agency. He said that although the credit for MOM’s success goes to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and ISRO team but as the ministry is headed by our MP Dr. Jitendra Singh, it is obviously that we feel pride in claiming our state’s contribution in the field. He said that whatever has been achieved by the ISRO scientists has brought international laurels for them and the country and has also earned respect for its industry’s technological resilience.
District President Rajesh Gupta thanked the party activists to come forward in appreciating the success of MOM and said that this achievement on part of the Narendra Modi led government will inspire and boost the morale of young scientists across the country. He expressed hope that the Indian scientists will add more feathers in the space research and programmes of the country and take the nation to new heights.
