“It is a historic moment for Dr. Pachauri and India. Never before has a UN body headed by an Indian been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. This exceptional honour is recognition of the extraordinary work of Dr. Pachauri and his team at IPCC,” he said.
“They have done yeoman service in awakening our consciousness about the dangers of global warming and the measures that need to be taken urgently to address the serious challenges posed by it,” Singh added.
The Prime Minister said the award is a “big boost” to the efforts of Dr. Pachauri and his team of scientists, climate experts and economists to carry forward their work, which would eventually promote the welfare of mankind.
“I have great pleasure in extending my hearty congratulations to Dr. Pachauri, his Panel and all those associated with this effort for being recognized for their efforts through the prestigious Nobel Prize. I am sure that it will encourage them to work with renewed vigour towards a more sustainable future,” he added. (ANI)
