The Congress party on Saturday praised the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on the Chandrayaan-2 moon mission even as the Vikram lander lost communication minutes before making a soft-landing on the moon’s surface.
“The nation stands by the entire team of ISRO as we wait in these tense times. Your hard work and commitment have made our nation proud. Jai Hind,” the party tweeted.
Senior party leader and former President Rahul Gandhi also congratulated the ISRO for their “incredible” work which was an “inspiration to every Indian”.
“Congratulations to the team at #ISRO for their incredible work on the Chandrayaan 2 Moon Mission. Your passion and dedication is an inspiration to every Indian,” he tweeted.
