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.

                      How long you and your community will live as parasite. Stand up, show that you have spine and you don't need quota to survive.

                        The moment someone brings in Brahmanism in the discussion, totally out of context, what needs to be clearly understood is that the person is severely infected by Christian and leftists extremism. This is Church's Jihadism against India, which would want to equate Hinduism to Brahmans or to political ideologies, desperately trying to belittle Hinduism. People like you who are infected by this Jihadism needs to be culled out and handed over to law enforcing authorities, for you are trying to divide society by being a pawn in the hands of foreign subversive forces spreding divisive ideologies

                          PM Modi has a vision for India. Instead of supporting him to achieve this dream most is bend on thwarting because it is Modi which would be what the destabilizing forces like the Chinese and Pak would also like to see. Unfortunate

                              Moron, where in the write up is there a discussion on caste/religion? You must be a rice bag convert or a virulent jihadi, masquerading as a Hindu - coward fool.

                                More than 45 years ago, several people died of heart attack, just hearing the news that man had landed on the moon.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Still now, probably more than a billion, do not believe in that achievement of the mankind. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;The same numbers do not believe in, that water from sea and river do not mix together. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;These human beings with Twisted minds, are beyond repair. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Some comments would testify that proposition.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;For further verification just have a look at this video:lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;www dot youtube dot com Slash watch?v=Ng7fDSGxnf0

                                      The village woman using smoke emitting wooden chullahs says the same thing- “If the GOVENMENT helps me with FREE GAS ( that is helps me with technology, helps me with resources), I will be the very first person to switch over to clean energy completely,”

                                            Sunni mulla, "chaturvarnyam mayasrishtam, gunakarma vibhagasaha". Means, one does not become Brahmin by birth, but by quality of karma
