ISRO should not become political mouthpiece of BJP: Cong
Congress leader Jairam Ramesh

New Delhi: The Congress on Saturday took strong objection to the ISRO highlighting the achievements of the PM Mudra scheme, saying it should not become the political mouthpiece of the ruling BJP.

“I can understand the ministries concerned propagating this but why should ISRO be acting like a drumbeater for something entirely out of its domain,” AICC general secretary Jairam Ramesh said on Twitter.

His response came to a tweet by Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) in which it highlighted that the Prime Minister’s Mudra scheme has fulfilled the entrepreneurial dreams of millions of Indians.

“ISRO should remain a S&T enterprise and not become a political mouthpiece of the ruling party (sic),” Ramesh said.

Help sustain honest journalism.

Posting on its Twitter handle, the country’s space agency said that in eight years, the Mudra Yojana has been “empowering millions of Indians to fulfill their entrepreneurial dreams and contribute to the nation’s growth”.

“From micro-enterprises to large businesses, PM Mudra Yojana has opened doors of opportunity for all Indians,” the ISRO tweeted.
