Central Union Minister Dr. Faruk Abdullah meet BSY

Union Minister for New and Renewable Energy Farooq Abdullah on Tuesday asked the Karnataka government to consider a ‘heritage sites’ plan for popularisation of solar energy and also assured the state that its energyrelated demands would be considered “generously.” Abdullah, who had recently told Lok Sabha that the parliament house could be run on solar energy, noted that according to the heritage sites plan, places like Hampi, Raj Bhavan and the state secretariat (Vidhana Soudha) could go all-solar in terms of lighting and other daily energy demands.

Following a meeting with Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa, Energy Minister K S Eshwarappa and senior officials in Bangalore, Adbullah invited additional chief secretary and principal secretary (energy) K Jairaj to New Delhi to further the same and discuss other energy related issues.
