Why CNN-IBN is showing MMS. We don't want to see him , hear him with coal tarred face. What a disgrace that pathetic chap is.
Well, that "pathetic chap" was the one who wanted the mission, okayed the plans, financed it and saw it launched. NYT is right. Modi has absolutely nothing to do with this other than the speech he gave today. That is fine . He is after all the elected PM of the day.
But let us not miss the wood for the trees and acknowledge the contributions made and who created this mission in the first place. Modi could have been more gracious and acknowledged MMS in is speech,when he spoke about Vajpayee and Chandrayaan.
When Modi gave credit to Vajpayee for inspiring Chandrayaan, I expected him to mention MMS in passing for Mangalyaan. It would have been swell, if Modi had done that. Politics is nasty; and he missed that bus and played partisan politics. A tad disappointing that he did not take the high road.

I didn't expect MMS to talk about it after keeping Maun vrata for 10 years and busy doing /allowing others to do scams after scams.''' CWG, CoalG , 2G, 3G, 4G ( remember it ) SG, RG, PG, IG and so on so forth. The credit goes all to ISRO . MMS was busy doing $G there.
It was conceived by ISRO and was in three+ years in preparation as a result of success of Chandrayaan which was the idea proposed by ABV.MMS is insipid, lacks inspiration and new ideas. he could not have spoken of it first. MMS merely announced it from Red fort to avert attention from scams or like a doorman announcing arrival of guests.
