Radhakrishnan, accompanied by his wife Padmini, offered prayers early on Monday morning for the successful launch of PSLV-C25 from Sriharikota on Tuesday, temple sources said.

An ardent devotee, Radhakrishnan visited the over 2000 year old shrine with the replicas of the PSLV-C25 to seek divine blessings. The replicas were placed for a while at the feet of the idol of Lord Venkateswara.

Ahead of every satellite launch, Radhakrishnan visits the hill shrine for the successful launch and makes another trip after its success, the sources said.
