Climate change: An upcoming threat with little political traction during Lok Sabha elections 18.4.2014 DNA: Popular News

The manifestos of its contending political parties reflect this discomfort. It is not that the parties are deaf to environmental concerns. But these come low down on their lists of things to do and are seldom more than good intentions disguised as promises, with few suggestions about ...
