modiIndian Prime minister Narendra Modi on Monday asked the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) to develop a satellite which will serve all the SAARC nations, reported the Times of India.
Addressing Indian space scientists at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh after the successful launch of PSLV C23 rocket, the prime minister said the fruits of India’s space missions should reach other developing nations, especially India’s neighbours.
‘You should develop a SAARC satellite,’ he told the scientists.
‘We should dedicate this satellite to our neighbourhood as India’s gift … India is rooted in our age-old ethos of ‘Vasudeva Kutumbakom’. Our space science reflects that. We should share the fruit of this with our neighbouring countries,’ he said.
