Chandrayaan-3 lands on moon, creates history. How politicians reacted to India’s historic achievement

It was a giant leap for India on Wednesday evening as the Chandrayaan-3 lander module successfully landed on the moon’s South Pole, making it the first country to have achieved the historic feat and bringing to an end the disappointment over the crash landing of the Chandrayaan-2, four years ago.

Officials at India’s space agency ISRO headquarters in Bengaluru broke into applause after the Vikram began its powered vertical descent towards its landing site.

“A glorious day for every Indian as ISRO scripts history! Congratulations ISRO. Every Indian is proud of this remarkable achievement and we are grateful for your service,” posts Union Minister Smriti Irani.

Here are the top political reactions:

“This is a historic moment! It is a big achievement for the country. Many congratulations to all the countrymen, scientists, engineers and employees of ISRO for the success of Chandrayaan-3,” posts Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal.

“India becomes the first nation to touch the south pole of the moon with the success of the #Chandrayaan3 Mission. The new space odyssey flies India’s celestial ambitions to newer heights, setting it apart as the world’s launchpad for space projects. Unlocking a gateway to space for Indian companies, it will create a plethora of employment opportunities for our youths,” posts Union Home minister Amit Shah.
