‘Patriotic ISRO scientist Narayanan' was falsely implicated: PM

Days after his government honoured Nambi Narayanan, the celebrated ISRO scientist with Padma Bhushan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that the scientist was falsely implicated by Kerala leaders to settle political score. “More than two decades ago, a hardworking and patriotic ISRO scientist, Nambi Narayanan was implicated in a false case, just because a few UDF leaders were settling political scores. Imagine, for their own politics, they damaged national interest, troubled a scientist,” the Prime Minister said while addressing a rally in Kerala’s Thrissur on Sunday.
