Rahul Gandhi congratulates DRDO scientists while AKhilesh Yadav targets PM on “Mission Shakti”
Congress president Rahul Gandhi congratulated the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) scientists but did target PM Modi. “Well done DRDO, extremely proud of your work. I would also like to wish the PM a very happy World Theatre Day,” he tweeted
Union minister Nitin Gadkari hailed the scientists involved in the project and said India was moving fast towards becoming a world leader under PM Modi’s leadership.
Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav targeted PM Modi after the announcement and accused the PM of trying to divert attention from other issues. “Today @narendramodi got himself an hour of free TV & divert nation’s attention away from issues on ground — #Unemployment #RuralCrisis & #WomensSecurity — by pointing at the sky. Congratulations @drdo_india & @isro — this success belongs to you. Thank you for making India safer,” Akhilesh Yadav tweeted.
Bahujan Samaj party chief Mayawati also took to Twitter to praise the scientists but she did slip in a dig at the Prime Minister. “The PM is trying to do politics under the guise of the announcement is very condemnable. The Election Commission must take cognizance,” she said.
