What are the aims of Chandrayaan-3?

ISRO says there are three mission aims of the Chandrayaan-3

1) To show a protected and delicate touchdown on the lunar floor;

2) To show Rover roving on the moon

What occurred to the Chandrayaan-2 mission?

Chandrayaan-2 encountered a setback throughout its touchdown try on September 7, 2019. Throughout the descent part, the Vikram lander carrying the Pragyan rover strayed from its unique course, and the reference to the lander was misplaced.
