Delhi Has No Infrustructure For Bty-Operated Vehicles But AAP Adamant to Procure 1000 e Buses
The AAP government on Saturday approved a proposal to add 1,000 low-floor AC electric buses to the national capital’s public transport fleet, making Delhi the first city in the country to have such large number of environment-friendly vehicles.
Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari attacked the AAP government saying it always accused Modi government of obstructing it from functioning, and still it managed to go for such a large number of e-buses.
“After, four years now Kejriwal government is going to procure 1,000 e-buses, although he always accused Modi government of stopping it from working,” Tiwari said in a press conference.
He also alleged “corruption” in procurement of buses.
BJP MLA and Leader of Opposition in Delhi Assembly Vijender Gupta claimed there were not enough charging facilities and depots for the e-buses.
“The Delhi government will suffer loss of Rs 80 per km per electric bus which will be Rs 60 lakh per year. For 1,000 buses, the loss will be around Rs 600 crore per year, and Rs 6,000 crore in ten years,” claimed Gupta.
