PM Narendra Modi's idea of wind turbines for water is a challenge
New Delhi : Prime Minister Narendra Modi is among the leaders who do not hesitate in trying something new and innovative. His zeal could be seen in his brand new idea of producing water via wind turbines.
In his recent conversation with the CEO of Vesta Wind Systems, a Danish maker of wind turbines, PM Modi asked him to create a technology that could be used in wind mills to separate moisture and condense it to form water. He further asked to research if oxygen can also be separated.
Mr. Modi's reasoning was that the spinning turbine would be able to “suck out moisture” from the air and condense it into water. He further theorised that a turbine could go on to “separate” oxygen from the air, and thereby could produce oxygen, power and clean water.
Mr. Andersen said that Mr. Modi’s ideas conveyed “passion” that would keep his engineers “very busy”.
However, his remark was picked up by a leader of Opposition Rahul Gandhi who slammed him for making an impractical statement at a world stage.
“The real danger to India isn’t that our PM doesn’t understand. It’s the fact that nobody around him has the guts to tell him,” the former Congress president tweeted while sharing a video clip of the Prime Minister’s interaction with Henrik Andersen, president and CEO of Danish wind turbine-maker Vestas.
Railway Minister Piyush Goyal replied to Rahul Gandhi mocking in the same manner the tweet was written. Mr Goyal wrote, "Nobody around Rahul Gandhi has the guts to tell him that he doesn’t understand. He mocks PM Narendra Modi’s ideas when the CEO of the world’s leading company endorses them."
