Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday asked the people to serve as “trustees” in protecting the environment and utilising natural resources for the present while ensuring happiness of future generations.

On the occasion of the World Environment Day, he said there is a need to reaffirm the pledge to protect environment and make the planet cleaner and greener.

“We are blessed to be a part of a culture where living in complete harmony with the environment is central to our ethos. Let us serve as trustees, where we utilise our natural resources for the present & at the same time ensure happiness of future generations,” Modi tweeted.

    16th Lok Sabha starts from yesterday. Thank God our leaders are behaving mature. They understand to disrespect someone means to treat someone without reverence or respect. As an individual, we ought to respect the rights of every other individual and not encroach upon their happiness.

    Indian politicians think the relationships with voters can be biggest downfall, because they are so demanding and no one able to fulfill all needs of all voters. So this is the biggest excuse for not giving work and time. The entire law is summed up in a single command; Love your voters as yourself.

    Mr Politician! It is suggested that whatever might be your cirstances, either good or bad; you should always maintain your dignity and do not commit any insane act for which you might have to repent later.

    Our honorable Parliamentarian! Hope you behave properly for the common cause and welfare of our citizens. Always maintain and withhold your dignity when people disrespect you. Silence kills the maximum and speaks for itself.

    Politicians do not understand the relation between voters and representatives. Relationships are the biggest channel to give love, and so you can change your entire life just through the love you give in your relationship.
