Former Indian President, Dr. Abdul Kalam stated that he believes that, in ten years, the world must move towards clean-energy cars. He made this statement when speaking to students from schools and universities at the BMICH in Colombo.

The former Indian president also attributed the greatest pollution in the world to be caused by automobiles and trucks because they use diesel and petrol, and every litre one burns generates two kilogrammes of CO2.

Dr. Kalam  further stated that there should be a move towards electric-powered cars or bio fuel cars or solar-powered cars and that in another ten years time we should move towards clean powered cars.

Minister of Power and Energy Patali Champika Ranawaka, Indian High Commissioner to Sri Lanka Y.K. Singha, school students, principals and teachers were present at the event organised by the Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority and the Ministry of Power and Energy.
