New Delhi: India is promoting its own technology and largely contributing to bringing down the carbon footprint, Thabang Linus Kholumo, the High Commission of the Kingdom of Lesotho said here on Thursday (June 29). He was speaking on the occasion of Boiler Expo 2023 here in the national capital.
Speaking to ANI, Mr. Kholumo said,
I am really impressed because India is promoting its own technology and its own people. The motto of ‘Make in India’ and ‘Make for the World’ is highly promoted. Today it is Boilers, tomorrow it will be something else. The contribution of India in reducing the contamination of the environment to bring down the carbon print is very high and very appreciated. I am doing my best to contribute to the reduction of the carbon print in the world. In our country (Lesotho), we have very less carbon print. But, for the world, these technologies are highly appreciated, because it will save our environment
He also said that he is impressed by the Indian democracy and Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s governance. He added,
When it comes to democracy in India, I think I am equally impressed, because people here have the freedom to do what they like, what they know and the government is actually promoting that. The government is exposing them for the world to see. That it democracy and it is best
On Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Mr. Kholumo said,
PM Modi is the Prime Minister of the world. Everybody likes him. I like his style of governance. He is promoting India. And India is going to be a superpower very soon. Its economy is growing, its people are growing, and the glory goes to the Prime Minister
Kanhaiya Lal Ganju, the honorary consulate of the Union of Comoros, also expressed optimism about the event and said that it will help in taking new technologies across the world including in Africa. He said,
It is a great privilege for me to have come to this exhibition at the invitation of the Global Trade and Technology Council of India. I am very pleased to see that the companies which have participated here are as old as 90 years, 100 years and that is very amazing to see. And all these companies who are here, are exhibiting their products, they are doing innovation
He further added,
When they are having an exhibition, this will help develop the industry and many other things. And I am very pleased that this technology can be taken to Africa because Africa needs such type of technologies. Africa is a developing area in this part of the world. So, therefore, we will pass on this information to our countries which I represent or we all represent. And I was told that one company has already established one factory in Mongolia. Similarly, they can do it in Africa also

NDTV – Dettol have been working towards a clean and healthy India since 2014 via the Banega Swachh India initiative, which is helmed by Campaign Ambassador Amitabh Bachchan. The campaign aims to highlight the inter-dependency of humans and the environment, and of humans on one another with the focus on One Health, One Planet, One Future – Leaving No One Behind. It stresses on the need to take care of, and consider, everyone’s health in India – especially vulnerable communities – the LGBTQ population, indigenous people, India’s different tribes, ethnic and linguistic minorities, people with disabilities, migrants, geographically remote populations, gender and sexual minorities. In wake of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the need for WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) is reaffirmed as handwashing is one of the ways to prevent Coronavirus infection and other diseases. The campaign will continue to raise awareness on the same along with focussing on the importance of nutrition and healthcare for women and children, fight malnutrition, mental wellbeing, self care, science and health, adolescent health & gender awareness. Along with the health of people, the campaign has realised the need to also take care of the health of the eco-system. Our environment is fragile due to human activity, which is not only over-exploiting available resources, but also generating immense pollution as a result of using and extracting those resources. The imbalance has also led to immense biodiversity loss that has caused one of the biggest threats to human survival – climate change. It has now been described as a “code red for humanity.” The campaign will continue to cover issues like air pollution, waste management, plastic ban, manual scavenging and sanitation workers and menstrual hygiene. Banega Swasth India will also be taking forward the dream of Swasth Bharat, the campaign feels that only a Swachh or clean India where toiletsare used and open defecation free (ODF)status achieved as part of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2014, can eradicate diseases like diahorrea and the country can become a Swasth or healthy India.
