Islamabad: Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry on Sunday stepped up his criticism of India's space activities accusing New Delhi of "adding into space debris", a day after Indian mission to make soft landing on moon failed.

The minister took to twitter and said, "Endia is adding into space debris, ealier “Mission Shakti” failed and now “Chandrayaan”, irresponsible attitude of #ModiSarkar from region to space is disastrous for the world,Galaxyies and the planet is a delicate business politicians must not be allowed to play foolish gimmicky," he said on Twitter.

To support his stance over this statement, the minister also shared a link to a foreign media report titled "More than 50 pieces of debris remain in space after India destroyed its own satellite in March ".

According to report, by destroying one of its own satellites in space, India is posing a small but potential threat to other functioning spacecraft that might pass close by.

"It’s possible that some of this debris could stay in orbit for a full year before falling back down to Earth," the report quoted space trackers saying .
