TORONTO, Apr 16 : A day after Canada agreed to supply uranium to India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said India must succeed in harnessing clean energy like nuclear power to combat climate change and address global concerns.
He regretted that India was denied reactors by the world despite the land of Mahatma Gandhi and Gautam Buddha having an impeccable record in peace.
"The whole world is worried about global warming and climate change. People in air-conditioned rooms discuss this issue. But if India succeeds in generating clean energy, one-sixth of the humanity will take responsibility for addressing the climate change.
For that, nuclear energy is important," he said, addressing the Indian diaspora at a function in Toronto where Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his wife were present. ?PTI
