All Members of Parliament have been asked to contribute through their MPLADS fund towards providing streetlights powered by solar energy in rural areas. A directive in this regard has been issued to members of both Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha.

The contribution has to be made from MPLADS (MPs’ Local Area Development Scheme), it said. The move is in keeping with the government’s emphasis on the maximum use of new and renewable energy.
