New Delhi, September 8: The increasing pollution worldwide is getting escalated by overuse of cars with petrol and diesel fuel. Hence to tackle the menace of politics, the government will soon bring in a policy on electric vehicles. For innovation in electric car vehicles, he asked carmakers to carry out research.
"We should move towards alternative fuel... I am going to do this, whether you like it or not. And I am not going to ask you. I will bulldoze it. For pollution, for imports, my ideas are crystal clear... The government has a crystal-clear policy to reduce imports and curb pollution," Gadkari said.
The overuse of cars is even now a problem in smaller towns. The government has planned for an innovative platform or app like Ola, Uber which would facilitate the use of two-wheelers as a taxi. Gadkari advised car industry to use a part of its profit for "cost-effective import substitutes and pollution-free technologies".
