‘Salute to all the passengers of Chandrayaan’ : Ashok Chandna, Rajasthan Sports Minister

Display of poor knowledge by the Sports Minister of the Congress Government in Rajasthan

Jaipur (Rajasthan) – Following the successful landing of Chandrayaan-3 on the moon, India has received compliments from around the world. On this occasion, Ashok Chandna, the Sports Minister of the Congress Government in Rajasthan, also extended his compliments. While speaking to reporters, he stated, ‘We have achieved success and landed safely. I salute the individuals who journeyed to the moon with Chandrayaan. Our country has taken another step forward in science and space exploration, and I congratulate all the citizens for this.’ Ashok Chandna’s lack of accurate information was exposed by this statement, as no individuals had actually travelled aboard Chandrayaan. Consequently, he faced significant trolling on social media.

Mamata Banerjee Refers to Rakesh Sharma as Rakesh Roshan

Mamata Banerjee, the Chief Minister of Bengal, while praising Chandrayaan, mistakenly referred to Indian Air Force officer Rakesh Sharma, who travelled to space in a Russian spacecraft in 1983, as Rakesh Roshan. As a result, she too faced trolling on social media.

Editorial Viewpoint

This incident serves as an illustrative example of certain Indian politicians who exhibit an attitude of ‘possessing boundless knowledge’.
