Indias green programme comes as an article of faith Piyush Goyal
India's renewable energy programme is not dictated by any external pressure but comes as an article of faith, Power Minister Piyush Goyal said. The Minister said the solar alliance is an opportunity to serve humanity and those who still have no access to power. "Our effort for cleaner environment and greener environment comes as an article of faith. It is not something we are doing out of international pressure. We are looking to set right what went wrong in the past, to correct the imbalance in the atmosphere, the way development has taken place over several years," he said. The ISA which comprises 121 countries that lie partially or fully between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn is intended to create a platform for larger collaboration for technology, research and development and capacity building.
