Explaining the reason for postponing the lunar mission, Isro chairman Dr K Sivan told TOI, "Our panel of eminent space scientists comprising former Isro chairmen, top space experts and IIT professors has praised our preparations for the Chandrayaan-2 mission. However, keeping in mind the complexities involved in the mission as for the first time Isro is experimenting with a orbiter, a rover and a lander, the panel recommended postponing the launch till we complete all tests and are confident of a perfect mission."

It is my humble opinion that population control should be the top priority for our country. Instead of spending 800 Cr on this chandrayaan mission it should be spent on mass sterilizations. with a target of atleast 10000 per day .

As a citizen Don't mind paying taxes for projects taken up by ISRO for betterment of our nation. Instead of giving thousands of crores of citizens tax paid money to inefficient and scam hit nationalised banks and Air India every ruling government should give ISRO Scientist for making Indian Space Research best in the world. Jai Hind .

This is happening due to our visionary PM Modi ji. Congress was wasting money on building Masjids, and Madrassas.
