Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said India is committed to protecting the environment and is doing everything required for it but expects others to also fulfil their commitments. While the world was discussing the "inconvenient truth", India took actionable change, the prime minister said while addressing delegates at the World Sustainable Development Summit in New Delhi. "Respect for nature is part of India's culture. We consider Earth our mother. India believes in growth but is also committed to protect the environment," he said. "We are doing everything that is required of us and we expect that others also join into fulfilment of that commitment based on common but differentiated responsibility and equity," PM Modi said, without taking any names.
