CNG-driven boat rally was flagged off by Union petroleum & natural gas minister Hardeep Singh Puri at Namo Ghat in Varanasi on Sunday. Addressing the event, Puri said, "The India Energy Week follows the PM's pledge at CO to cut India's emissions to net-zero by 2070. As part of this proposed event in Bengaluru, the CNG boat rally is organised in Varanasi to exhibit how PM's vision has resulted in the conversion of high-polluting diesel engines to CNG engines in boats floating in river Ganga in Varanasi."
