NEW DELHI — Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP Mahua Moitra in a fiery speech in Lok Sabha on Friday targeted Modi govt and highlighted the immediate concerns of the country and appealed the govt to act in the right direction.

The Centre has an uncanny knack of ignoring what is important and concentrating on headlines, Moitra said. Elaborating her point she mentioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s appeal to people to put the Tricolour as the profile picture of their social media accounts between August 2 and August 15.

“When we should be looking at the GDP, we are being exhorted by the government to concentrate on our DPs (display pictures),” she said in the Lok Sabha.

In her speech she touched upon the Energy Conservation (Amendment) Bill saying this is a step in the right direction. The TMC MP warned, “We have to be really serious about energy conservation and encouraging energy conservation and it is just not enough to be a government of gasbags. We have got to do more than that.”

“Currently, 95 per cent of the hydrogen produced is grey hydrogen, which is from natural gas, so there are technological challenges for transportation and usage. A major research and development effort is required in the green hydrogen space. It will not be easy to shift from 95 per cent grey hydrogen to green hydrogen,” Moitra said.
