New Delhi/ Chennai, Feb 17 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid foundation stone for various development projects in Tamil Nadu via video-conferencing on Feb 17. In the event PM Modi said, "In 2019-2020, India imported over 85% of oil and 53% of gas to meet domestic demand. I don't want to criticize anyone but I want to say, had we focused on these projects much earlier our middle class would not be burdened. It is our collective duty to work towards green and clean source of energy and reduce energy dependence. India is now increasing focus on ethanol to help farmers and consumers. We are furthering urges of solar power to become the leader in the sector and are encouraging public transport to make people's life productive and easy.”
