Rameswaram (TN): Former President APJ Abdul Kalam`s dream of turning Rameswaram to a solar city would be a reality in five years, a top official of BrahMos Aerospace said here on Friday.
"In five years, Rameswaram will be changed completely to a solar city as per the wish of Dr Kalam. Solar lighting will first be provided to fishermen, schools and hospitals and later to all houses," BrahMos Aerospace chief A Sivathanu Pillai told reporters.

He sought the cooperation of all people to ensure its success.

He was speaking at a function where solar lamps were fixed free of cost on five mechanised boats.

Pillai said the solar lamps would attract fish, enabling fishermen to have a larger catch. It would also help them not cross the International Maritime Boundary Line, he said.
