PM Modi inaugurates electric bus service for MPs

New Delhi, Dec 21 (IANS) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday inaugurated an electric bus service for parliamentarians aimed at promoting environment-friendly initiatives in the country’s public transport system.

“The world has been discussing issues concerning the environment for a long time, but the ill-effects of pollution have been felt only of late,” he said after launching the ‘Go Green’ bus service in the Parliament House complex here.

He presented the bus keys to Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, who was the first to enter the bus after the inauguration of the service.

Speaking on the occasion, Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari said similar buses will be introduced in the public transport sector across the country.

Gadkari said each electric bus will help save Rs.8 lakh per year since its running cost will be lesser compared with conventional buses.
