Stressing on energy security, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said India will have to be independent in this area and seek new avenues to replenish existing sources in a bid to serve the growing appetite of the people.

“We need to be independent when it comes to providing our people with energy,” Modi said, while inaugurating the “Urja Sangam – 2015” conference on energy security at the Vigyan Bhavan exposition complex here.

He also pitched for people who are well off to surrender their fuel subsidy entitlement.

“People who don’t need LPG subsidy and those who are capable of managing without it should give it up. I ask you to join this movement. Give up gas subsidy. Create a record. The subsidy that you will give up will go a long way in benefitting the poor people.”
