Chidambaram hails Narendra Modi’s vision

New Delhi, Aug 16, 2019-

Senior Congress leader P. Chidambaram on Friday hailed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision over population explosion, eliminating single use plastic and respecting wealth creators.

“All of us must welcome three announcements made by the Prime Minister on I-Day. Small family is a patriotic duty, respect wealth creators and shun single-use plastic,” he said in a series of tweets.

“Of the three exhortations, I hope the Finance Minister and her legion of tax officials and investigators heard the Prime Minister’s second exhortation loud and clear,” the former Finance Minister added.

Referring to the population and elimination of single use plastics, Chidambaram said, “The first and third exhortations must become people’s movements. There are hundreds of dedicated voluntary organisations that are willing to lead the movements at local levels.”

His remarks came a day after Modi during his Independence day speech from the ramparts of the Red Fort, said that population explosion will cause many problems for our future generations.

“But there is a vigilant section of public which stops to think, before bringing a child to the world, whether they can do justice to the child, give them all that she or he wants. They have a small family and express their patriotism to the country. Let’s learn from them. There is need of social awareness,” Modi said in his speech.

Talking about the wealth creators, Modi said that wealth creation was a great national service.

Regarding the elimination of single use plastics, Modi said single-use plastic poses grave threat to the environment, adding that a significant step must come out by October 2.  (Agency)
