“Today is National Renewable Energy Day. Our state government is drawing up major schemes for the promotion of solar power and other sources of renewable energy like tidal powerin Bangla. One such scheme is ‘Aaloshree’ under which roofs of all government offices & schools are being fitted with solar panels”, Mamata tweeted.
