Isro spirit in country, moon mission has united India: Modi

ROHTAK: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said an "Isro spirit" has gripped the country, which has been united by the moon mission Chandrayaan-2, and the nation now looks beyond success and failure.

"On the night of September 7, 100 seconds after 1.50am, an incident awakened and united the entire country. Like (there is) a sportsman spirit, an Isro spirit is running in the country. Countrymen are not ready to accept negativity," Modi said. Recalling the early of hours of Saturday, when Chandrayaan-2's lander was scheduled to make a soft landing on the moon but suffered a setback, the Prime Minister said at 1.50am; the entire country was sitting in front of television screens to watch the good news of Chandrayaan-2. "In those 100 seconds whatever the country did, it reflected the mettle of 125 crore countrymen," said Modi.
