Congress President Rahul Gandhi congratulated the defence research body DRDO for the successful test of an anti-satellite missile in operation ‘Mission Shakti’. Rahul Gandhi also took swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, by wishing him ‘Happy Theatre Day.’

“We congratulate ISRO and the government on the latest achievement for India. The Indian Space Programme established in 1961 by Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru & the Indian Space Research Organisation set up under Smt.
