Emphasizing on importance of alternate bio-fuels for diversification of agriculture towards energy and power sector, Mr Gadkari said, “In our economy we are spending 8 lakh crores for the import of petrol diesel and petroleum products which is a big challenge. We have designed a policy that encourages development of imports substitute cost effective pollution free and indigenous ethanol, bio CNG, LNG and hydrogen fuels.”

He said the ministry is constantly working on different alternative fuels. He said we have to use surplus in rice, corn and sugar to prevent it from going waste.

Talking about flex engines Mr Gadkari said decision will be taken in three months making it mandatory for automobile manufacturers particularly the four wheelers and two wheelers to make flex engine. Several countries like USA, Canada and Brazil already have them.

He said the cost of the vehicle remains the same whether it is petrol or Flex engine.

Meanwhile earlier this month, Gadkari said he wants to make Auli, a hill station situated in Uttarakhand, an attraction for tourists across the world. Addressing a virtual event, Gadkari also said he is planning to develop a landscape between the 18-km-stretch of Zojila tunnel in Ladakh and Z-Morh tunnel in Jammu & Kashmir like world-famous Davos in Switzerland.

“We want to develop Auli in Uttrakhand near Badrinath and Kedarnath as an attraction for tourists across the world,” he said. The small-yet-picture-perfect town of Auli is India’s premier ski resort destination.

Gadkari’s ministry will also seek the nod of the Union Cabinet for allowing the construction of smart cities, townships, logistic parks and industrial clusters along national highways.

Addressing a virtual event recently, Gadkari said his ministry’s goal was to construct a world-class highway network and has chalked out a plan for monetising existing highway projects for infra capital generation. The minister said his aim was to construct a 60,000-km world-class national highway at the rate of 40 km per day.

“And now we have prepared a cabinet note for approval ….for making roadside townships, smart cities, logistic parks, industrial clusters,” he said. “We are making 400 roadside amenities,” Gadkari added while addressing the 16th Annual Conference on “Road Development in India”.
