New Delhi: Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) Lok Sabha MP Kunwar Danish Ali has written to Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh to enhance the search operations by deploying best men and machines to find the 27-year old Indian Engineering Service (IES) officer missing since June 22 in Ladakh.

In a letter to Rajnath Singh, the BSP MP said, “Subhan Ali had gone for an inspection of the Minamarg Quarantine centre on June 22, but did not return.”

Ali, who is the Lok Sabha MP from Uttar Pradesh’s Amroha said that the 27-year-old officer’s family was informed on June 23 that the vehicle in which he was travelling has fallen into a deep gorge and was swept away in the fast flowing river in Drass.

Ali further said that four days later, the Maruti Gypsy was taken out of the river, but the officer and his driver Palvinder Singh were still missing.

“The Border Roads Organisation and Kargil administration have been trying to find the officer and the efforts they have made with their limited resources have not succeeded in finding the missing officer,” he said. “I request you to kindly look into the matter and deploy best men and machines to find the missing IES officer whose distraught parents are going through a traumatic nightmare,” the BSP leader added.

Speaking on the occasion the Prime Minister said the Rewa project will make the entire region a major hub for pure and clean energy in this decade. The Prime Minister praised the effort in that it will also supply power to the Delhi Metro, along with the entire region surrounding Rewa.

He said very soon Madhya Pradesh would be the main centre of Solar Energy in India, as such major projects are in progress in  Neemuch, Shajapur, Chattarpur and Omkareshwar.

The biggest beneficiaries of this would be the poor, the middle class, the tribals, the farmers of Madhya Pradesh, he said.

Prime Minister said Solar Energy would be a major medium for providing the energy needs of an aspirational India in the 21st Century.

He described Solar Energy as one which is ‘Sure, Pure & Secure’. Sure because of the continuous supply of Energy from the Sun, Pure as it is environment friendly and Secure because it is a secure source for our energy needs.

Prime Minister termed such Solar Energy projects are a true representation of Aatmanirbhar Bharat (Self-Reliant India).

He said the economy is an important aspect of self-reliance and progress. Referring to the regular dilemma whether to focus on Economy or Ecology, Prime Minister said India resolved such dilemmas by focussing on Solar Energy Projects and other environment friendly measures. Prime Minister Modi said Economy and Ecology are not contradictory but complementary to each other.

He said in all the programs of the government, priority is being given to environmental protection as well as Ease of Living. He referred to programmes like Swachch Bharat, supply of LPG cylinders to the poor households, the development of CNG networks as one which focussed on Ease of Living and improving the lives of the poor and the middle class.

The Prime Minister said that the protection of the environment is not limited to just a few projects, but it is the Way of Life.

PM said it is ensured that the determination towards clean energy is seen in every aspect of life, when launching large projects of renewable energy. Government is making sure that its benefits reach every corner of the country, every section of society, every citizen. He elaborated this with an example of how the introduction of LED bulbs has reduced the electricity bill. Nearly 40 million tons of carbon dioxide is prevented from going into the environment, due to the LED bulb. He said this also reduced the Electricity Usage by 6 Billion Units and accrued a saving of Rs 24,000 Crore to the exchequer.

He said that the Government is working towards making our environment, our air, our water also to remain pure and this thinking is also reflected in the policy and strategy on solar energy.

PM Modi said India’s exemplary progress in the field of Solar Energy would be a major source of interest to the World. He said owing to such major steps, India is being considered as the most attractive market of clean energy.

The Prime Minister said that the International Solar Alliance (ISA) was launched with the motive to unite the entire World in terms of solar energy. He said the spirit behind  was  One World, One Sun, One Grid.

The Prime Minister expressed confidence that Madhya Pradesh’s farmers will also make use of the Government’s KUSUM Program and will instal Solar Energy plants in their lands as an additional source of income.

He expressed the hope that very soon India will be a major exporter of power.

Prime Minister said India is also focussing reducing its dependence on imports of various hardware needed for solar plants, like Photovoltaic Cells, Battery and Storage.

He said the work is progressing rapidly in this direction and the  Government is encouraging the Industry, the youth, MSMEs and StartUps to not miss this opportunity and work for production and betterment of all the inputs required for Solar Energy.

Referring to the ongoing crisis owing to the pandemic COVID-19, the Prime Minister said for either the Government or the society, compassion and vigilance are the greatest motivators to tackle this difficult challenge. He said right from the beginning of the Lockdown the Government ensured that the poor and needy are assured of supply of food and fuel. He said with the same spirit, the Government decided to continue the free supply of food and LPG till November this year, even during the phase of unlockdown.

Not only this, the government is also giving full contribution to the EPF account of millions of private sector employees. Similarly, through the PM-Swanidhi scheme, those who have the least access to the system get benefitted.

He added that when people are moving out of their home to make Madhya Pradesh great, they should follow these rules – maintaining a distance of two yards, wearing a mask on the face and washing hands with soap for at least 20 seconds.
