New Delhi, Sept 26 (IBNS): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday congratulated ISRO on successful launch of PSLV-C35/SCATSAT-1 and 7 co-passenger satellites.

He said India's space scientists scripted history with the launch on Monday.

"Moment of immense joy & pride for India. Congratulations to @isro on successful launch of PSLV-C35/SCATSAT-1 & 7 co-passenger satellites," Modi tweeted.
