Khunti | India was not responsible for environment related problems as the forefathers have always taught not to damage the environment, however, the country would contribute for the protection of humanity no matter who is responsible for damaging it, Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Addressing a function after inaugurating the roof top solar power plant at Khunti district court here, Mr Modi said recently at the United Nations Meeting, the leaders of the world were discussing about environment related issues including global warming, uncertain rainfall rising ocean levels which is posing a threat to several smaller nations.
He said one can understand that states such as Gujarat and Rajasthan were using solar power but one would be surprised as why Jharkhand which has abundant of coal reserves was going towards Solar power use.A new example has been set before the world by Jharkhand, he said adding that Jharkhand is a place where the tribals have protected the environment for centuries and now it has taken a pledge to use solar power for which the state and its people needed to be congratulated.
He said that as the Chief Minister of Gujarat he use to participate in the meeting called by the Supreme Court where the Chief Ministers and Chief Justices of all the courts use to participate.
During course of such a meeting a high court judge pointed out that their area received only two-three hours of power on two or three days in the week due to which the number of pending cases were on the rise as the court could not function due to lack of power.
I was surprised to know that despite many decades of Independence, justice was not being delivered to the people due to lack of power, he said, adding that the solution to the problem has been found by the judges of Jharkhand High Court which has opened a new area of justice.
