TIRUCHY: Though the carbon emission in the country is comparatively less, we need to minimise the use of electricity to protect the environment, said Minister Siva V Meyyanathan in Pudukkottai on Wednesday.

Addressing the visitors of Pudukkottai Book Fair, Meyyanathan said, it is time to promote reading habit, especially among those in rural Tamil Nadu. “Reading of good books keeps your mind free from communal thoughts and it will certainly put an end to communal clashes,” the Minister added.

While the COVID pandemic taught everyone a lesson on the importance of leading a healthy life and living a life in sync with nature, he said adding, “In order to lead an intellectual life, we need to read books.”
