Kyoto: India should be pro-active

 
In a letter to the Prime Minister, copies of which were released to the press, Chandrashekar said India also need to engage in a constructive and pro-active manner in the ongoing negotiations on climate change based on equity.

Chandrashekar has taken exception to the reported change in stand taken by Union Minister of State for Environment and Forests Jairam Ramesh that India was willing to reconsider its traditional position and commitment to Kyoto protocol, so that the United States could come on board at the Copenhagen convention. “This also implies abandoning G-77 allies in favour of G-20 group of Industrialised countries,” Chandrashekar stated.

“Very awkward questions are being asked on the position of Jairam Ramesh which we have not been able to respond to satisfactorily,” he said and urged the Prime Minister to clear the air on the crucial issue.
