Prime Minister Narendra Modi has asked ISRO to remain vigorously engaged for other ambitious programs despite the non-completion of the Chandrayaan-2 mission. According to sources, PM Modi can call a meeting very soon to decide the roadmap ahead and provide all possible help from the government. Apart from ISRO, this meeting will include experts and representatives from other departments concerned. It is noteworthy that the Prime Minister also has charge of the Ministry of Space Technology. In this meeting, PM Modi will also review ‘Gaganyaan-2022’. Along with this, he will also assure ISRO that the government is fully standing with them. On 15 August last year, PM Modi announced from the Red Fort that in 2022, India will send humans to space for the first time. If India succeeds in doing so, it will become the fourth country in the world to do so.
During the visit of PM Modi to Russia this week, the two countries reached important agreements on the issue of training related to Gaganyaan.
ISRO has been working in this direction for the last few years. After assuming power in 2014, PM Modi worked with a lot of focus on the space mission. PM Modi has not only talked about the space power of India on international platforms, but is also promoting cooperation in it from other countries. During the visit of PM Modi to Russia this week, the two countries reached important agreements on the issue of training related to Gaganyaan. According to sources, after the review meeting, the government may give an additional budget of Rs 2000 crore for ISRO.
