Former Chairman of ISRO G Madhavan Nair on Friday congratulated the entire team of scientists at ISRO and hoped that the mission would be a success. “I am sure the first portion of the journey has started off very well. My compliments to the entire ISRO team,” Nair told PTI. Analysing the visuals being telecast live, he said that the takeoff was very smooth, and that continued to the second stage. “Right now I have seen the cryogenic stage getting ignited. This is again the most critical event of the mission,” the former ISRO chief said, adding that from the data available so far, the mission is on the dot, and he hoped that the mission would be a success.
