Leaders of various political parties in Tamilnadu hailed the efforts of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) for coming very closer to landing on the Moon's South Polar region and inspiring a billion people to look towards the outer space through Chandrayaan-2 mission. DMK President M K Stalin tweeted 'Thank you Team @isro for inspiring a billion people to look towards outer space and place our faith in the power of science and technology.
''We are proud of our scientists for taking us farther than before', he said. PMK Founder Dr S Ramadoss patted the ISRO scientists and said the present setback after ISRO lost touch with Chandrayaan-2 lander Vikram, minutes before it was to land near the south pole of the Moon, as temporary.'There is no space agency in the world which has not faced setbacks. Chandrayaan-2's effort is brilliant. ISRO scientists should be appreciated',he added.'The Nation will stand by the scientists in reaching the moon', Dr Ramadoss said.
