Did I ask India to spend millions on incompetent scientists for failed moon mission: Fawad
ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Federal Minister for Science and Technology Ch Fawad Hussain has questioned Indians why he is to be blamed for failed Indian's Moonshot mission that consumed millions of Indian rupees.
In his tweet in connection with India’s failed attempt to land a spacecraft near the Moon’s unexplored south pole, the minister criticised angry Indians for abusing him in tweets without any justification.
"Why are they abusing me? Did I ask the Indian government to spend 900 crores in Indian rupee on incompetent scientists who worked on Chandrayaan-2 project."
"Surprised on Indian trolls reaction, they are abusing me as I was the one who failed their moon mission, bhai hum ne kaha tha 900 crore lagao in Nalaiqoon per? An sabr kero aur sonah ki koshish kero," Fawad Ch tweeted.
Grilling further the Indian scientists, the minister further tweeted, "Modi g is giving Bhashan on Satellite communication as he is actually an astronaut and not politician, Lok Sabha shld ask him QS on wasting 900 crore Rs of a poor nation..."
Ch Fawad's tweet has followed news that India’s attempt to become the first nation to land a spacecraft near the Moon’s unexplored south pole has apparently ended in failure.
The Chandrayaan-2 approached the Moon as normal until an error occurred about 2.1km (1.3 miles) from the surface, officials said.
India’s Space Research Organization (Isro) said it lost contact seconds before the ship was expected to land.
