Varanasi Travel: Boats have now started running on environment-friendly CNG as part of the government’s initiative to reduce noise and air pollution around the river Ganges in Varanasi. According to the government, so far 583 boats have been converted into CNG-powered boats. This information has been given by Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister Hardeep Singh Puri. He told that there is a plan to replace most of the boats plying in the river Ganges in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh with environment friendly fuel. CNG is being supplied to these boats from the country’s first floating CNG station set up by GAIL at Namo Ghat.

According to PTI report, Hardeep Singh Puri told that PM Narendra Modi had expressed his desire to run CNG-powered boats on the Ganga river in the month of July last year. As against the target of 500 boats, 583 boats have already been converted to CNG. The government is now trying to run 2 thousand boats with CNG. In order to promote CNG fuel, a target has been set to run CNG-powered boats on the holy Ganges of Varanasi.
