PM bats for cleaner, greener planet

June 05, 2014 13:05 IST

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday asked the people to serve as “trustees” in protecting the environment and utilising natural resources for the present while ensuring happiness of future generations.

On the occasion of the World Environment Day, he said there is a need to reaffirm the pledge to protect environment and make the planet cleaner and greener. “We are blessed to be a part of a culture where living in complete harmony with the environment is central to our ethos. Let us serve as trustees, where we utilise our natural resources for the present and at the same time ensure happiness of future generations,” Modi tweeted.

He said along with government’s efforts, people’s participation can make a big difference in creating a cleaner and a greener planet. “Let us ensure that even the smallest step we take in our daily lives will be an effort towards conserving nature and natural resources,” he said.
