which has accused it of acting as a political mouthpiece for the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The Congress party has criticized the ISRO for highlighting the achievements of the PM Mudra scheme, which provides loans to small entrepreneurs, during a recent event.
The Congress party has called on the ISRO to focus on its primary mandate of scientific research and space exploration, and to avoid engaging in political activities. The party has accused the BJP of using the ISRO to promote its policies and of trying to politicize the achievements of the space agency.
The BJP, on the other hand, has defended the ISRO and accused the Congress party of trying to undermine the achievements of the space agency for political gain. The party has said that the ISRO has every right to highlight the achievements of the PM Mudra scheme, which is a successful government program that has helped millions of small entrepreneurs across the country.
Experts have warned that the controversy could harm the reputation of the ISRO, which is widely regarded as one of the world’s leading space agencies. They have called on the government to ensure that the ISRO remains independent and focused on its core mandate, and to avoid using it for political purposes.
The ISRO has not yet responded to the controversy, but it is expected to issue a statement soon clarifying its position.
