We are all proud of Chandrayaan-–1, India'’s first moon mission in 2008 for which the memorandum of understanding (MOU) has been signed by Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and NASA. But how have the Leftists who are the controllers of the UPA Govt. responded to this Indo-American joint mission. Congenitally anti-American, they would predictably be indifferent, if not openly opposed to it. The question likely to come up before long is whether this project was included in the Common Minimum Programme. If the Leftists had their way they would prefer dumping the money needed for it in the bottomless pit of Employment Guarantee Scheme. The other question relates to reservation for OBC in ISRO, particularly in the team of scientists and engineers working on this project. Let Arjun Singh raise this issue. Let him also get a commitment from Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi that in future when the first manned spacecraft would be launched for landing on the moon half the number of astronauts would be OBC and SC&ST. It should not matter if they do not return back to earth and get lost in outer space.
