Exemplary Commitment, Courage By ISRO, Says President

New Delhi: President Ram Nath Kovind on Saturday said the ISRO team has exhibited “exemplary commitment and courage” on the Chandrayaan-2 moon mission.

“The country is proud of ISRO. We all hope for the best,” the President tweeted as the Vikram lander lost communication minutes before it was scheduled to make a touchdown on the moon’s surface.

The team of ISRO scientists wore a gloomy look soon after signals from Vikram stopped coming even as it was just 2.1 km from making soft landing on the moon’s South Pole.
