Lalu Prasad Yadav's Unusual Moon Roaming Claims in Chandrayaan 3's Aftermath

Patna: On August 31, 2023, Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav expressed his congratulations to Indian scientists for the Chandrayaan 3 mission, claiming that Indian astronauts had been sent to the moon by ISRO and had roamed extensively on its surface. These peculiar statements were made during his speech following a meeting of the opposition alliance I.N.D.I.A. held in Mumbai.


Lalu Prasad Yadav stated, "Now, the scientists deserve much praise. People went to the moon via Chandrayaan. They roamed a lot there." He also humorously suggested, "I appeal to the scientists of ISRO that they should take Narendra Modi along on their next mission and send him to the Sun." Chandrayaan 3, launched by ISRO on August 23, 2023, successfully landed its Vikram lander on the lunar surface. Since then, numerous strange reactions have emerged from Indian politicians representing various parties who may not be well-versed in space missions. It's essential to note that Chandrayaan 3 is an unmanned ISRO mission.

Lalu Prasad Yadav joins a list of Indian politicians who have made similar factual errors. Rajasthan's Sports and Youth Affairs Minister, Ashok Chandna, previously believed that Chandrayaan-3 was a manned mission, asserting that India had sent astronauts to the moon. He stated, "We became successful, and we landed safely. I salute the astronauts who went there. With this success, our country will advance a step ahead in space science and research. I congratulate all the countrymen." OP Rajbhar, leader of the Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SBSP), also inadvertently made a similar mistake when congratulating ISRO scientists on the successful Chandrayaan-3 mission, particularly highlighting its safe arrival on Earth, showcasing the misconceptions surrounding the mission.
