If Tipu developed the missile, why didn’t he fire them?

By Vicky

If Tipu was the pioneer of missile technology, then why didn't he fire them? This was a poser by BJP MP, Prathap Simha in response to the valour certificate given by President of India, Ram Nath Kovind.

If Tipu developed the missile, why didn’t he fire them?

Kovind said at a function in Bengaluru that Tipu was a pioneer in the development of the rocket and a fighter who died a glorious death.

He was a pioneer in the development and use of Mysore rocket. This technology was later adopted by the Europeans," Kovind added in his address to the joint session of the Karnataka Legislative Assembly and Legislative Council.

This did not go down well with the BJP and its leaders also alleged that the speech was scripted by the ruling Congress in the state.

BJP MP, Prathap Simha took to Twitter and posed a couple of questions. "Respected @rashtrapatibhvn ji, if Tipu was d pioneer of missile technology, y did he lose 3rd n 4th Anglo-Mysore war? Y didn't he fire them?"

He also said "Tipu Died A Hero, Pres Says. Sir, Heroes fight n die in battlefield, Timid Tipu died inside d fort without fighting," Simha also wrote on Twitter.
