The tweet quickly drew criticism from users who found his remark insensitive and derogatory. Many users condemned him for confusing political trolling with national matters.
"There is a difference between hating someone and hating your country," wrote one user. "So sad to see this state of yours!"
Another user clarified that Chandrayaan 3 is an ISRO mission not associated with any political party. "Prakash ji, this Chandryan mission is from ISRO not BJP," they wrote. "If it gets to succeed, it's for India not for any party. Why you want this mission to fail? BJP is just a ruling party. It will go one day. But, ISRO will remain for years and will make us proud."
Expressing dismay, another individual wrote, "You have stooped so low.. feel ashamed that you are a fellow countryman !! I am proud of ISRO !! Jai Hind."
Criticising the tweet's unnecessary nature, another social media user wrote, "It was unnecessary. Some things are far above political ideology. Look you are melting faster than the ice. Wishing you a speedy recovery."
Prakash Raj is known for frequently criticising the ruling party and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He launched his active political engagement with the hashtag #justasking on social media following the assassination of his friend and journalist Gauri Lankesh in September 2017. While he contested as an independent candidate for the Bengaluru Central Lok Sabha constituency in the 2019 Indian general election, he suffered defeat.
