PM Narendra Modi to launch solar-powered e-boats on River Ganga in Varanasi

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday will pay a visit to his Lok Sabha constituency Varanasi.

In Varanasi, he will launch solar-powered boats for plying on river Ganga.

Also, PM Modi would be distributing 11 solar-powered 'e-boats' at the Assi Ghat.

"Particularly excited to launch a scheme for environmentally friendly e-boats at Assi Ghat. These will help bring down pollution. The e-boats will also bring down operational costs thus ensuring higher incomes for those who earn their livelihoods through such boats," he said in a series of tweets.

Later, the Prime Minister will also distribute 1,000 e-rickshaws and also hold a chaupal with rickshawpullers. 

Before launching the e-boats, he will meet 100 prominent people from the district to discuss about the development of Varanasi.
