"We are today digging Earth and cutting trees mindlessly not to utilise the natural resources but to exploit them. We are taking out minerals like coal, diamond, bauxite, iron.Over-exploitation of such resources is leading to global warming. The whole environment is getting affected due to it,"Chouhan said.
    
He said the objective of the conference is to find ways to bring good governance for the people through the principle of Dharma-Dhamma. "I want to incorporate religion in governance so that there is happiness in people's life and there is public good. I want to assure you that my government will imbibe all the suggestions that comes up during the deliberations here to improve governance," Chouhan said.
