On World Environment Day, Modi stresses on need for nurturing a better planet

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi emphasised the need for nurturing a better planet on the World Environment Day on Monday.

Reaching out to people through his Twitter handle, the Prime Minister also saluted those working towards protecting the environment.

The Prime Minister said this year’s theme of ‘connecting people to nature’ was nothing but a way “getting connected with ourselves”.

“World Environment Day is the right time to reaffirm our commitment to protecting our environment and nurturing a better planet,” the Prime Minister tweeted.

“We salute the will and determination of all those individuals, organisations working towards protecting the environment,” the Prime Minister added in another tweet.

Last week, after US President Donald Trump announced the withdrawal of the US from the Paris climate deal, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said the present generation should not snatch the right of the future generations to a clean and healthy earth.
