Bhubaneswar: Marking another significant milestone in the spread of the Pradhan Mantri Urja Ganga in Odisha, Union Petroleum & Natural Gas Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on Saturday launched supply of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) and 17 CNG-run scooters in the capital city of Odisha.

The Minister inaugurated the two CNG stations in Chandrasekharpur and Patia here in the smart city.

GAIL (India) is implementing the Pradhan Mantri Urja Ganga and also the City Gas Distribution (CGD) projects in the twin city of Bhubaneswar and Cuttack.

In his media reactions, the Petroleum Minister said, “Today clean fuel reached our Bhubaneswar. As a first step in the transportation sector, auto rickshaw and two-wheeler will gain CNG from today. It’s Modiji’s New Year gift to Odisha.”

“When the urban belt of India is under stress for pollution, we have been successful in providing CNG facility in Bhubaneswar city well in advance. I thank GAIL. Due to CNG, 30-40% cheap fuel will be available here. The auto drivers will save Rs 2000-2500 by using CNG fuel. Two-wheeler riders will gain Rs 1,500-2000 savings from it,” the Minister elucidated.

“I welcome Modiji’s initiative for facilitating this smart city with the smart fuel,” he quipped.

In her reactions, Subhalaxmi Mohanty beamed, “It is full of comforts. Also eco-friendly. Carbon percentage is less. It’s per litre Rs 59. In comparison to petrol, its consumption is also less.”
