We are working to make BioCNG from trash; CNG usage is being ramped up in public transport; we are trying to reduce dependence on CNG import: PM

The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today addressed an event to mark World Biofuel Day in New Delhi. He addressed a diverse gathering, consisting of farmers, scientists, entrepreneurs, students, government officials, and legislators.

He said biofuels can provide fresh momentum to India in the 21st century. He added that it is fuel produced from crops, which can change lives of people in both villages and cities.

He said that the plan to produce ethanol from biofuel was initiated when Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee was the Prime Minister. After 2014, a roadmap was prepared for the Ethanol Blending Programme. He said that besides providing benefit to farmers, this move helped save foreign exchange worth Rs. 4000 crore last year, and the target is to take this number to about Rs. 12,000 crore over the next four years.

The Prime Minister said that the Union Government is investing significantly in the effort to transform biomass to biofuel. There is a plan to set up 12 modern refineries. A large number of employment opportunities will be created in the process.

The Prime Minister said that schemes such as Jandhan, Vandhan and Gobardhan are helping to transform the lives of the poor, the tribal population, and the farmers. He said that the transformative potential of biofuels can be realized only through the participation of students, teachers, scientists, entrepreneurs and the people. He urged everyone present to help take the benefits of biofuel to the rural areas.

The Prime Minister also released a booklet on “National Policy on Biofuels 2018.” He also launched the “Proactive and Responsive Facilitation, by Interactive and Virtuous Environmental Single-window Hub” (PARIVESH).

 

बायोफ्यूल सिर्फ विज्ञान नहीं है बल्कि वो मंत्र है जो 21वीं सदी के भारत को नई ऊर्जा देने वाला है

बायोफ्यूल यानि फसलों से निकला ईंधन, कूड़े-कचरे से निकला ईंधन

ये गांव से लेकर शहर तक के जीवन को बदलने वाला है

आम के आम, गुठली के दाम की जो पुरानी कहावत है, उसका ये आधुनिक रूप है: PM

BJP govt has made efforts for Naxal-free state, says PM Modi in Bokaro

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi addressed two mega political rallies in Barhi and Bokaro, Jharkhand today. Seeing the BJP swept Karnataka’s bypolls, PM Modi thanked the people of Karnataka for reposing faith in the BJP for stability and development. He remarked, “What happened in Karnataka is a win of public opinion, also a victory of democracy.”

Expressing his gratitude towards people of Karnataka, PM Modi said, “What the country thinks about political stability and for political stability how much the country trusts BJP, an example of that is in front of us today. BJP has won on most seats in Karnataka bypolls.”

Addressing the poll meeting, he highlighted, “The truth of the Congress also has to be remembered by the people of Jharkhand. The Congress has never stood the confidence of the coalition. It uses alliances and mandates for its own sake. Then uses its colleagues as puppets for their own benefit.” He asserted those that said the BJP has limited influence in southern part of the country were punished by the people in a democratic way.

Urging people to vote the BJP to power for a second successive term, the prime minister said the double-engine growth of Jharkhand became possible because the party was in power both at the Centre and in the state.

Elaborating on the benefits of double-engine growth, PM Modi said apart of the gas connection given to poor families under the Ujjwala Yojana by the Centre, the BJP government has resolved that every poor's house should made food on the LPG in Jharkhand, and two free cylinders were given to them.

“On one hand, the poorest of the poor families are getting free treatment up to Rs 5 lakh through Ayushman Bharat, on the other hand, the campaign for free immunization of more than 50 crore animals across the country has also started,” the Prime Minister said.

“The BJP government formed the District Mineral Fund for the first time. Today, Jharkhand has got about 5000 crore rupees under it. With this amount, the BJP government is laying water pipelines here, building schools and hospitals and providing other facilities,” PM Modi said.

PM Modi, who was in Bokaro, also said “Jharkhand is like a growing child and Jharkhand is now 19 years old. It will soon stop being a teenager. I want you to stand with me and I promise you that when Jharkhand turns 25 you will witness a great transformation.”

PM Modi said, “The BJP works for the development of everyone and does not differentiate on the basis of caste, religion or community.” He also hailed the BJP government for breaking the backbone of naxalism and cleared the path of development.
