Exactly, what we are saying for ISRO today was what we were saying for DRDO a decade back.Once we considered isro as best performing asset of government , then came drdo of 2020.
Isro need reforms , launch should be frequent and project should be completed in time , they are deploying all their energy in gaganyaan , whereas we should focus more on reusable launch vehicle ,earn some profit and invest in rnd more
ISRO used to be our darling in India, where none of Govt PSU were expected to perform. ISRO was doing amazing stuff although compared to these PSU only (global players were still much faster).
But over the last few years DRDO has managed to turned around its image completely, so many projects are running in parallel, so many projects are showing results also.
But ISRO seems to have lost track, even after so much years, where a lot of rocket stuff is outsourced to private players we are still seeing only 4-6 launches per year, SSLV nowhere to be seen, Powerful engines no where to be seen, only thing which is coming out is "ISRO is already working on the same".
