Where do YOU stand on the issue?

Free speech and dialogue between those who disagree is the lifeblood of democracy. We especially welcome young Indians who will be voting in 2019, because it is your future that this galaxy of decision makers, will be debating. And energy producers and those in the banking and finance sector who invest in the energy sector stand to gain valuable insight.
