India committed to stop nuclear proliferation: PM
India can generate 470,000 MW of power by 2050 if “we manage three stages of our nuclear programme well”, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said in New Delhi on Tuesday.
“If we can manage our programme well, our three-stage strategy could yield potentially 470,000 MW of power by the year 2050,” Singh said in his inaugural address at the international conference on peaceful uses of nuclear energy.
“This will sharply reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and will be a major contribution to global efforts to combat climate change,” he said.
He said it was a matter of regret that the global non-proliferation regime had not succeeded in preventing nuclear proliferation. “Its deficiencies in fact have had an adverse impact on our security.”
