“Sabhi Bharatiyon ko dhanyawad (I thank all Indians)”, UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon said lauding India for ratifying the historic climate deal on Gandhi Jayanti. Environmental conditions had always been substandard in India and joining the Paris Climate Change Agreement would help make things better.
“Gandhiji believed in a world worthy of our children. In joining the Paris Agreement, PM Narendra Modi and the Indian people carry on that legacy,” Obama tweeted praising India.
PM Modi responded to Obama’s tweet saying “Care and concern towards nature is integral to the Indian ethos. India is committed to doing everything possible to mitigate climate change.”

Ban KI-moon says ‘dhanyawad’ to all the Indians, “Today, the government of India has demonstrated global leadership and vision by joining the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. This historic step will further India’s sustainable path to growth and development,” he adds. Improving environmental conditions had always been India’s concern and joining this agreement is a big step towards it.
Honoring a commitment.
