ISRO Chairman Radhakrishnan behind move against me: Nair

G Madhavan Nair
Bangalore, Jan 25: Hurt at the action taken against him over the Antrix-Devas deal, former ISRO chief G Madhavan Nair on Wednesday accused space agency Chairman K Radhakrishnan of being behind the move and pursuing a "personal agenda" to mislead the government.

"This is his (Radhakrishnan's) personal agenda. That individual is bent upon hitting so many people and in that process, he is killing the organisation," a bitter Nair told PTI here.

"He (Radhakrishnan) has misled the Government on the whole issue (the controversial Devas deal). He is the key person who worked behind this; he misled and miscommunicated to the Government and he has taken action", alleged Nair, who was the key figure behind India's Chandrayaan-1 moon mission.

The government action against Nair and three other eminent space scientists came in the wake of the controversial Antrix-Devas deal in which a private company was allotted scarce S band spectrum by ISRO allegedly in violation of rules.
