Mission Shakti: Rahul congratulates DRDO, showers sarcasm on Modi

Chennai: The latest announcement by Prime Minister Modi on ‘Mission Shakti’ may have taken the wind out of the sails of the Congress but it recovered quickly.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi spread his sarcasm thick and brought the party into the picture.

Congratulating the Indian Space Research Organisation, Congress said in a tweet, ‘We congratulate @isro & the Govt on the latest achievement for India. The Indian Space Programme established in 1961 by Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru & the Indian Space Research Organisation set up under Smt. Indira Gandhi has always made India proud with its ground breaking achievements.’

But he also said sarcastically: ‘Well done DRDO, extremely proud of your work. I would also like to wish the PM a very happy World Theatre Day’.
