If India had the capability to launch an anti-satellite missile in the past why did it wait until 2019? This was former DRDO chief Dr VK Saraswat’s answer. 🚀🗳

    Achha hua previous govt didn't clear the project becoz Manmohan Singh knew, the technology might be sold to foreign nationals by KGB agent (madam ji)

    I think india could be the third country. I dont know 15 yrs before who was successful in missile or space technologies. But india was unlucky that it did sooooo late

    Actually I believe it is an election stunt. After election dates released the whole country will be under election commission. It is violation of election code for a pm to take such a big decision. The mission should have conducted after election but BJP believed that it will fetch votes for them as they failed in dealing with pakistan. Sad thing is that EC hasn't uttered a word. And I'm not supporting congress

    If satalite was ready for launch during 2012/2013 , let it be correct UPA govt didn't give permission to launch I fail to understand why DRDO chief waited for launch until March 2019 just after 5 years of present I regime.

    VK SARASWAT is a man of dual personality.

    Half truth tantamounts to a lie We have the capability for interception of satellite. But we do not have to test because it is not our primary objective. There are repercussions of satellite interception like debris flying in the space. Today we can validate anti-satellite technology on ground through simulation. There will be no direct hit of satellite. If the nation want, we can have it ready. DRDO CHIEF VK SARASWAT ON 10 FEB #2010 Hailing Mission Shakti, Saraswat had said that the proposal was put forth by Dr G Satheesh Reddy, the present Scientific Advisor to Defence Minister, before Manohar Parrikar when he held the office of Raksha Mantri. The details of the mission were put forward by NSA Ajit Doval to PM Modi. Saraswat said that during the UPA era, a proposal to ministers and even the NSA (Menon held the office that time), however, neither any response nor financial resources were provided leading to scraping of the program, as reported by Economic Times in #2019. However, former National Security Advisor (NSA) Shivshankar Menon refuted Saraswat’s claim. In an interview with The Wire, Menon said, “This is the first time I have heard of it. Saraswat never asked me for permission for an A-SAT test.” Soon after this, Saraswat later clarified that while an informal presentation was made before the then government, no sanctions or approvals were sought and further added “to that extent, the statement made by Mr Menon and the position I have stated is exactly the same”. was given to show that we have such kind of technology. had been placed for sought permission to test such technology. A scientist like him don't know the difference is something very very hard to believe. @brutindia
