Prime Minister Narendra Modi says if the world helps him with technology, he will be the first person to “switch over to clean energy completely”. The Prime Minister discussed India’s position and vision to help fight climate change with American TV talk show host David Letterman in a documentary series Years of Living Dangerously. The show will go on air on National Geographic channel from Saturday, and the first episode will be with Modi.

“If the world helps me with technology, helps me with resources, I will be the very first person to switch over to clean energy completely,” Modi said in a special behind-the-scenes video for the show.

The series investigates both the global and individual devastation wrought by the world’s most catastrophic issue of climate change. It also features popular celebrity hosts — from Harrison Ford to Matt Damon.

In the first episode, Letterman will also meet other key government officials, besides travelling to villages where 300 million people live without power, to understand whether India will continue to use dirty fossils fuels like coal, or will it be able to lead the way with the renewable energy programme. Letterman was happy after interviewing Modi. He said: “I don’t know what that was, but thank you. It’s one of those things that I would like to do again. I was hoping he would ask me to sleep over. I have nothing but questions for this man,” added the globally known host.

PM Modi has also been vouching for the importance of cleanliness in India and how ‘cleanliness is next to godliness’. He launched the Swachh Bharat Mission on 2014, under which several important campaigns were also launched.

The ‘#MyCleanIndia’ was launched simultaneously as a part of the Swachh Bharat drive to highlight the cleanliness work carried out by citizens across the nation.

                By karma, Modi is great or Brahmin. But by cast/birth he is not.
