Former DRDO chief VK Saraswat says, UPA govt blocked ASAT missile test in 2012

India has done a successful Anti satellite missile test today for security in space. This technique was so far only with America, Russia and China. This is a very big success for Indian in a defense sector, After this test a new disclosure has come to light. Former DRDO chief and member of the NITI Aayog, Dr VK Saraswat has claimed that India had acquired this technology in 2012. But unfortunately we did not get a positive response from the UPA government. So we could not move forward.

VK Saraswat said, “We made presentations to National Security Adviser&National Security Council, when such discussions were held, they were heard by all concerned, unfortunately, we didn’t get positive response (from UPA), so we didn’t go ahead.”

According to a report, when India first tested the Agni-5 missile from Wheeler Island in the year 2012, then at that time India had the capacity to do anti satellite missile test but govt didn’t approve it.

Former DRDO chief VK Saraswat also praised Pm Narendra Modi and NSA Ajit Doval and said, “When proposal was put up by Dr Satheesh Reddy & NSA Ajit Doval to PM Modi, he had the courage & based on that he gave a go ahead. If the clearances were given in 2012-13, I’m quite certain that the launch would have happened in 2014-15.”

According to Indian Express 2012 report, DRDO Chief VK Saraswat said in 2012, ” we Can show anti-satellite capability if govt gives nod”
