New Delhi: Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram on Friday hailed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision over population explosion, eliminating single use plastic and respecting wealth creators.

In a series of tweets, he said, “All of us must welcome three announcements made by the Prime Minister on I-Day. Small family is a patriotic duty, respect wealth creators and shun single-use plastic.”

“Of the three exhortations, I hope the Finance Minister and her legion of tax officials and investigators heard the Prime Minister’s second exhortation loud and clear,” Chidambaram added.

Referring to the population and elimination of single use plastics, Chidambaram said, “The first and third exhortations must become people’s movements. There are hundreds of dedicated voluntary organisations that are willing to lead the movements at local levels.”

His remarks came a day after Modi during his Independence Day speech from the ramparts of the Red Fort.
