DAVANGERE: The Union Government will soon solve the Antrix-Devas deal involving former chief of ISRO Madhavan Nair and present chairman Radhakrishnan as the government was not interested to condemn or disrespect the scientists in the country, said Veerappa Moily, Union Minister of Corporate Affairs, here on Monday.

Addressing media persons here Moily said the former chairman of ISRO had headed the Devas company to get the spectrum distribution from the ISRO with his past influence, as this had become a row now, they will be solved soon. However, the Union Government has decide not to give any position to Nair in any government organisations, Moily pointed out.

The BJP on Monday slammed the Union Defence Ministry for the blacklisting of ISRO and accused the government of having lost its “grace to govern”.

“The ISRO controversy, blacklisting of top scientists who had given their best in terms of scientific achievement and then again sending signals to rethink on the decision, gives a clear signal that this government has lost all sense of balance and grace to govern the country,” Vijay said. Vijay also slammed the government and the Defence Ministry for its stand on the age row. “The government has failed to uphold the constitutional principles of law, justice and fairness and is systematically ruining the institutions that have held the basic foundations of the Constitution high,” Vijay said.
