PM criticised for climate change remark
New Delhi, Sept 6: While Prime Minister Narendra Modi wooed many school kids across the country with his witty answers on Teacher's Day, there were a few who criticised Modi for his comment on climate change.

During an interaction with school students across the country, one student questioned Modi about cliamte change, to which he responded: "Climate has not changed. We have changed, our tolerance and habits have changed.

If we change then God has built the system in such a way that it can balance on its own."

Modi, shortly after his 'climate change' statement, received sharp criticism by many on social media who said that PM must acknowledge the process of climate change as it may have an adverse effect on the students, who also may not acknowledge climate change.

Modi added that reality was that some people in our families are old and experience cold. "They say this time the weather is colder, people's ability to bear cold has become less.

We should also ask is this climate change or have we changed. We have battled against nature. We should love nature instead of fight it," he said.
