He said the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, the only such ministry in the world, is focusing on the four energy sectors namely solar, wind, geo-thermal and biomass. Calling youth as the main building block of infrastructure, Abdullah said till every person understands his or her responsibility, India’s development path will not be an easy.
