ISRO ad controversy

The birthday wish comes amid verbal clash between the DMK and the BJP following a newspaper advertisement by a Tamil Nadu minister regarding ISRO's upcoming spaceport at Kulasekarapattinam in Thoothukudi district.

The DMK faced severe criticism from the BJP, as PM Modi accused the party of neglecting India's achievements in space technology and called for an apology.

“DMK is a party that does not work but seeks to take false credit for central schemes. They paste their stickers on our schemes. Now they have crossed limits by pasting China’s sticker to take credit for the ISRO launchpad in Tamil Nadu,” Modi charged at a meeting in Tirunelveli in south Tamil Nadu. X

Alleging that the DMK was not ready to accept India’s progress in the space sector, he said, “with the taxes that you pay, they give advertisements and do not even include a picture of India’s rocket in them.” He charged the DMK did not want to present India’s space success in front of the world. “They insulted our scientists, our space sector, and your tax money. Now it is high time that the DMK is punished for their deeds,” he said converting the official function into a Lok Sabha poll campaign platform.
