Prime Minister Narendra Modi has stressed the need for climate justice to protect the nature saying the people from poor and marginalized sections are the ultimate victims of climate injustice. 

In a video message on his selection for the prestigious UN Champions of the Earth Award, Mr Modi said as the world thinks for their welfare, it must among other things, also put emphasis on protecting nature. 

Mr. Modi said, it is not an honour for an individual but rather for the great Indian tradition which taught the value of co-existence with nature. 

The Prime Minister said he is delighted that human race has begun to recognize the importance of nature. He added that the struggle with nature has brought destruction both on humankind and on nature. He said in this changing situation, everyone is emphasizing on protecting nature and India is with the world on this issue.
