Electric buses a cheaper alternative to connect villages with cities: Yogi

Lucknow, Feb 20 (UNI) Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday said that if one lakh villages in Uttar Pradesh are to be connected with cities, electric bus service can become a cheap and popular medium for affordable service.
While participating in the 'bhoomi pujan' ceremony of Ashok Leyland's electric vehicle factory here, the Chief Minister said, "There is an extensive network of over 1.05 lakh revenue villages and more than 2 lakh hamlets in Uttar Pradesh and electric buses can become an affordable and accessible means of connecting rural areas with cities."
Emphasising the significance of expediting production, he said, "Prakashji and Ashokji of Hinduja Group have just handed me the keys to the double-decker electric bus. I urge them to start production at the earliest, not just hand over the keys. The markets of not only Uttar Pradesh, but the entire North India, eagerly await your vehicles."
