He said commitment and dedication toward the country are important for the development of the nation.
"We can achieve the target of increasing solar energy efficiency and reducing the cost of it and become the Vishwa Guru. We must take inspiration from our rich past, which shows how technologically advanced we were. We never lacked the human resource capacity and brain. We can again show this to the world," he added.
