NEW DELHI: PM Modi took to the twitter in order to comment on the successful launching of its 100th satellite today, holding that signified the bright future of Indian space program.

Scoring the much awaited century, India is now hopeful of projecting itself as a service provider in space and winning a considerable share in the $300b global pie of satellite launching industry.    

Pakistan pointing towards its civil as well as military nature raised objections saying that satellite could have a negative impact on the regional strategic stability.

Addressing a media briefing prior to the launch, spokesman of Pk Ministry of Foreign Affairs held: “According to media reports, India is set to launch 31 satellites including the earth observation spacecraft Cartosat, on 12th January 2018.

“All space technologies, including earth observation satellites, are inherently dual use and can be employed for both civilian and military purposes…

“All states have a legitimate right to pursue peaceful uses of space technologies. However, given the dual-use nature of such technologies, it is essential that such pursuits are not directed towards a build-up of destabilizing military capabilities, which can negatively impact the regional strategic stability”.
