Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday informed that many countries in the world have joined the International Solar Alliance (ISA) initiative started by India to fight against climate change. PM Modi asserted that India is among those countries where the cost of solar power is very low per unit.

Today many nations are joining with this initiative started by India. Now it is upon us that we take this initiative further.”
