इलेक्ट्रिक कार की सवारी करेंगे मोदी के मंत्री, विदेश से मंगाई एक हजार गाड़ियां

नई दिल्ली| केंद्र सरकार के मंत्री और कई अधिकारी जल्द ही आपको इलेक्ट्रिक कार की सवारी करते हुए दिख सकते हैं. प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी पर्यावरण को बचाने और प्रदूषण को रोकने पर जोर देते हैं. अब लगता है कि केंद्र सरकार मोदी के पर्यावरण को प्रदूषण से बचाने की बात को एक कदम और आगे बढ़ाते हुए नवंबर महीने में में इलेक्ट्रिक कारों की सवारी शुरू कर देगा.

भारत लगभग विश्व का तीसरा बड़ा तेल खपत करने वाला देश है और ये ईंधन भारी मात्रा में पेट्रोल और डीजल वाहनों के जरिए प्रदूषण फैलाता है और इसी प्रदूषण को रोकने के लिए सरकार 10, 000 इलेक्ट्रिक कार सेडान खरीदने की तैयारी में है.

इन कारों को चार्जिंग के लिए दिल्ली-एनसीआर इलाके में करीब 4000 चार्जिंग स्टेशन भी बनाए जा सकते हैं. इसके लिए पहले 1000 गाड़ियां आएंगी और फिर 9000 गाड़ियां अगली किस्त में आएंगी.

टाइम्स ऑफ इंडिया की खबर के अनुसार, केंद्रीय मंत्री पीयूष गोयल का कहना है कि हमनें इसके लिए टेंडर निकाल दिए हैं, जल्द ही हम इस योजना को सरकारी विभागों के साथ शुरू करेंगे. ईईएसएल के एमडी सौरभ कुमार के अनुसार, कंपनी लगभग एक हजार इलेक्ट्रिक कार चार सीटों वाली खरीदेगी.

कार की खासियत
इस इलेक्ट्रिक कार की स्पीड 120-150 किमी/घंटा तक हो सकती है. पहले फेज में एनडीएमसी इलाके में 300-400 कारें दौड़ सकती हैं. जो कि कई मंत्रियों और अफसरों को मुहैया कराई जाएंगी. पियूष ने कहा कि हमनें सरकार के सामने प्रस्ताव पेश किया है कि गाड़ी, ड्राइवर और रखरखाव का काम हम ही करेंगे. उन्होंने कहा कि इससे काफी बचत हो सकती है और प्रदूषण कम करने में भी मदद मिल सकती है.

Manmohan Singh, Rahul Gandhi, Top Opposition Leaders to Attend Sharad Yadav’s Meet

New Delhi, August 17: Former prime minister Manmohan Singh, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi and senior leaders from opposition parties are likely to attend a meeting that seeks to save “composite culture”, to be hosted by Janata Dal United leader Sharad Yadav on Thursday.

The JD(U) MP said that apart from the Congress, the Left and the Samajwadi Party, representatives of other opposition parties, including the Trinamool Congress, Bahujan Samaj Party and Nationalist Congress Party, will also attend the meeting which is being widely seen as a show of strength against his party chief Nitish Kumar‘s decision to ally with the Bharatiya Janata Party.

Asserting that “composite culture” was the soul of the Constitution, which he alleged was being “tinkered with”, Yadav said similar meetings would be held across the country. He added that the decision to hold the event was taken weeks ago.
