The programme at Mahatma Gandhi Open Auditorium, Beedinagudde was also attended by over 6,000 people.

Welcoming the dignitaries Kishore Alva informed that energy is very important for progress and said, “Statistics show that almost three-fourths of the demands of the energy in the world is fulfilled by fossil fuels. The overuse of these fossil fuels is clearly evident in the deteriorating environmental condition. Industries are not the only force to be blamed for this situation. Our choices of fuels for our vehicles and domestic application are also contributing to the growing environmental problems. Making smarter choices is the need of the hour.”

“Traditional fuels are thermally inefficient; a substantial amount of fuel carbon is lost to incomplete combustion. The use of these traditional fuels causes worsening of air quality, negatively impacting the local environment and human health, particularly among women and children due to their exposure and close contact with burning fuels,” he added.

Comparing Liquefied Petroleum Gas cylinder with Piped Natural Gas (PNG), Mr Alvas pointed out that the latter was more cost-effective, safer and more economical choice. “Moreover, the nonstop supply of PNG will also help everyone to overcome the need to book and wait for cylinder replacement or for changing the bottles in between cooking. CNG is a clear, odourless, non-corrosive fuel. It is also a cheaper, cleaner and more efficient alternative to the traditional fuels used in vehicles. CNG gas also reduces the emission of Carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons,” said Mr Alva.
