Gadkari makes bold statements, saying that India will stop using gasoline in five years



Nitin Gadkari, a union minister, expressed confidence that, after five years, India will no longer require the usage of gasoline in vehicles.

He received an honorary doctorate of science from the Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth on Thursday in Akola, Maharashtra, where he also made the announcement.

The Union minister made this declaration on Thursday, July 7, in Akola, Maharashtra, where he had just received an honorary doctorate in science from Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth.

I firmly believe that after five years, gasoline will no longer be produced in the nation. You will be using compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied natural gas (LNG), green hydrogen, or ethonal flex-fuel in your autos and two-wheelers,” he stated.

Gadkari asked researchers and experts in the field of agriculture to work on boosting the sector’s growth from 12 percent to 20 percent over the next five years.

The union minister praised Maharashtra’s farmers for their skill while emphasising the need to mentor and educate them using cutting-edge science and technology.
