“Davas Multimedia”
Ex-ISRO Chief Alleges Vendetta by Successor

G. Madhavan Nair

The Indian government’s decision to ban former ISRO Chairman G. Madhavan Nair and three other ex-agency officials from future government work over the Antrix-Devas Multimedia deal has exploded into a very public argument full of accusations and recriminations.

Nair says that he is the victim of a witch hunt initiated by his successor, K Radhakrishnan, who is desperately trying to distract people’s attention from numerous failures at ISRO. Nair alleges that Radhakrishnan had deliberately lied about details of the deal, under which Devas would have leased 90 percent of two ISRO-built satellites.
