Mysuru. PM Narendra Modi may be responsible for the failure of Vikram moon lander, according to H D Kumaraswamy. The former Karnataka chief minister said PM Modi's presence at the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) could have been a "bad omen".
Kumaraswamy said that the timing of Modi stepping in the ISRO headquarters "could have brought a bad omen to ISRO scientists".
Kumaraswamy also said that the Chandrayaan-2 project had been approved in 2008-09 and the funds for the same were released. However, Modi went to the ISRO headquarters to "seek publicity as if he was behind the launch of Chandrayaan-2.
