India on Wednesday scripted history after ISRO's Chandrayaan 3 made a soft landing on Moon's South Pole. Launched on July 14, the Chandrayaan 3 took 41 days to reach its destination in the south polar region on the Lunar surface. While the entire world is celebrating this feat with India, a video has surfaced on social media wherein a BBC news anchor could be heard insulting the country. In the video, the BBC anchor asked a panellist if India needed to spend so much money on a space programme. "India, which lacks infrastructure and has extreme poverty, should spend this much amount of money on a space programme," the anchor asks the panellist. Netizens fumed over remarks by the BBC anchor. However, we at LatestLY found that the viral video is actually an old one. Retweeting the old video on X, formerly Twitter, Mukesh Sharma, BBC Editorial Lead, wrote, "This one is an old clip and not on India’s #Chandrayaan3 mission." He also provided the link to BBC’s Chandrayan 3 coverage.
