Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday posted a series of tweets on his Twitter handle to congratulate the scientists after the successful launch of 20 satellites in a go. ISRO created history on Wednesday as its workhorse PSLV-C34 successfully injected 20 satellites into the orbit.
“20 satellites in a go! @isro continues to break new barriers. Hearty congratulations to our scientists on the monumental accomplishment,” tweeted the prime minister.
“Our space programme has time and again shown the transformative potential of science & technology in people's lives.”
“Over the years we developed expertise & capability to help other nations in their space initiatives. This is the skill of our scientists.”
PM Modi also hailed the students from Pune and Chennai institutes for their contribution in the making of the satellites.
“Saw with immense joy that students from institutions in Pune & Chennai played a role in the making of satellites. This touched me. As a common citizen, was totally immersed in happiness to see our youngsters excelling & taking so much interest in science.”
