PM Modi exhorts entrepreneurs to work towards producing cheap and efficient electric batteries in India

The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today attended a function at Parliament House, for the unveiling and demonstration of a retrofit electric bus. The bus has been converted from a diesel bus to a battery-operated electric bus. This is an initiative of the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, to provide clean, pollution-free transport for Members of Parliament.

The Prime Minister briefly visited the bus, and handed over the key of the bus to the Speaker of the Lok Sabha, Smt. Sumitra Mahajan.

Speaking on the occasion, the Prime Minister said that the environment had been a topic of discussion for long, but in recent times, the impact of damage to the environment is being felt by the common man.

The Prime Minister recalled the recent CoP-21 Summit at Paris, and talked about two significant initiatives taken there. One of these was "Mission Innovation," launched jointly by US, France and India, with the help of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, to work towards development of green technologies. The other was the creation of the International Solar Alliance of countries blessed with abundant sunlight. The Headquarters of this alliance will be in Delhi, the Prime Minister said.

In this context, the Prime Minister appreciated the efforts of the Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Shri Nitin Gadkari, in the launch of this bus. The Prime Minister exhorted entrepreneurs to work towards producing cheap and efficient electric batteries in India, which could spur a drive towards clean public transportation.

Speaker of the Lok Sabha Smt. Sumitra Mahajan, Union Ministers Shri Nitin Gadkari, Shri Venkaiah Naidu, Shri Prakash Javadekar, and a large number of MPs were present on the occasion.

May 28, 2024

Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a dynamic roadshow amid a record turnout by the people of Bengal who were showering immense love and affection on him.

"The fervour in Kolkata is unimaginable. The enthusiasm of Kolkata is unparalleled. And, the support for @BJP4Bengal across Kolkata and West Bengal is unprecedented," the PM shared in a post on social media platform 'X'.

The massive roadshow in Kolkata exemplifies West Bengal's admiration for PM Modi and the support for BJP implying 'Fir ek Baar Modi Sarkar.'

Ahead of the roadshow, PM Modi prayed at the Sri Sri Sarada Mayer Bari in Baghbazar. It is the place where Holy Mother Sarada Devi stayed for a few years.

He then proceeded to pay his respects at the statue of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.

Concluding the roadshow, the PM paid floral tribute at the statue of Swami Vivekananda at the Vivekananda Museum, Ramakrishna Mission. It is the ancestral house of Swami Vivekananda.
