New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today stated that youth should come and take part in the energy sector to make sure we get an affordable and reliable source of energy.
He further stated that youth’s involvement in this sector will find innovative ways for India’s oil security.
Prime Minster also promised to minimize the difference in the energy access by the rich and poor in India.
“We need to find out an affordable and reliable source of energy… youth should venture into this sector and find innovative ways for India’s oil security,” Modi said.
Modi further added: “In India while on one hand rich are buying hybrid cars, poor buy firewood, bringing health hazard to the rural women. Our focus is to reduce that disparity.”
He further stated that India requires energy that can be accessible to the poor.
Prime Minster recommended the youth to venture into the oil and gas sector so as to increase domestic production and reduce oil imports by 20 per cent by 2022.
