G7 Summit 2022

On the G7 Summit 2022, the Indian Prime Minister asserted that India’s commitment to the cause of environmental protection remains unaffected in spite of the challenges the nation has suffered in the path of its long history of growth and civilization. Ancient India was immensely prosperous but centuries of exploitation and slavery has caused irreparable losses to the country. Now again, independent India is among the fastest rising economies of the world. PM draws everyone’s attention to the fact that despite being the home to 17% of the world’s total population, India is accountable for 5% of carbon emission globally. The reason is that Indians believe in harmonious coexistence with animals and nature.
