Modi suggests use of public transport to fight global warming
Ahmedabad: After earning accolades from the
party for making voting compulsory in the local body poll,
Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Friday stressed that more
people should use public transport to save future generations
from dangers of global warming.
"Global warming is a major threat facing the world today.
There is a need to cut down the use of vehicles and increase
use of public transport," Modi said while inaugurating the
second edition of the Kankaria Carnival here.
"To save the future generation from global warming,
public transport system like Bus Rapid Transport System
(BRTS), is a solution," he said adding, "I appeal to people of
the city that this BRTS should become part of their lives, and
more and more people should start using it."
Modi also appreciated cleanliness maintained in vicinity
of Kankaria Lake.
"Last year over 50 lakh persons including politicians,
bureaucrats and diplomats visited the Kankaria lake. They all
found it clean and well maintained. This is amazing that
people equal to population of the city visited the lake in
last one year," Modi said.
This has revived the past identity of Ahmedabad and its
heritage, which the people of the city have inherited, he
