Union minister Smriti Irani flew a 17-year-old polytechnic student from Lucknow to Delhi on Thursday, promising to facilitate her trip to the top space institute. On Saturday, Irani is scheduled to accompany Neetu to the ISRO headquarters in Bengaluru.

Irani promised Neetu that she would assist her in visiting the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) after expressing a desire to see the prestigious institute.

On Thursday, locals from her village, including BJP district president Durgesh Tripathi, came to see her off to the airport.

Irani, the Union Minister for Women and Child Development, visited the Gauriganj assembly seat on May 10 to inaugurate a private educational institute near Durgan Bhavani Dham.

She asked Neetu Maurya, a student at Sanjay Gandhi Polytechnic in Jagdishpur, what she wanted to do next as she handed her a tablet. “I want to go to ISRO and become a scientist,” replied the student.

Hearing the young girl’s desire, the minister declared that she would “personally” accompany her to the ISRO next month. “Neetu will one day make Amethi proud,” she had said.

“My daughter was ecstatic as she left to visit ISRO,” Neetu’s father, Jag Prasad Maurya, said.

After finishing her polytechnic, she plans to pursue a career as a scientist at ISRO.
