On the occasion of World Biofuel Day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday devoted the 2nd generation( 2G) ethanol factory set up at the Indian Oil Corporation’s Panipat refinery in Haryana. 


“ This factory won't only help reduce air pollution from the Delhi – NCR region but also help induce fresh income and green energy, ” the Prime Minister said addressing a gathering via videotape- conferencing from Delhi. 

 

Spread over 34 acres, the ₹ 900 crore design is grounded on a state- of- the- art indigenous technology. It'll turn a new chapter in India’s waste- to- wealth endeavours by utilising about 2 lakh tonnes of rice straw( parali) annually to induce around 3 crore litres of ethanol annually. 


The PM also saluted the people of Haryana for the performance of the sportspersons from the state in the lately concluded CWG, 2022, saying, “ Haryana’s fields will also induce energy like its sportspersons have shown the energy by winning orders in the Commonwealth Games ”. 

 

“ Biofuel is the need of the hour as it'll help reduce our reliance for energy and energy on other countries. This won't only check the inflow of plutocrat from the country but also induce fresh income for our growers, ” he said. 


The Prime Minister said the country is heading in this direction as it has formerly achieved the target of 10 per cent ethanol blending in petrol with the country’s ethanol product adding to 400 crore litre. 

 

“ This factory will also use sludge and sugarcane waste besides paddy straw to produce ethanol. Indeed growers who were being criticised for burning crop waste will also feel proud by helping the country to meet its need for biofuel, ” he added. 


The Prime Minister attacked the former governments for their “ failure ” to break the problems of stubble burning saying, “ Some people espoused lanes for their political interests and finessed the problems for several times. Those espousing lanes may get applause for some time and may gain political advantage, but that doesn't break the problem. But our government is working on a endless result to the problem. That's why similar shops are being set up, ” he added. 

 

Takes a dig at Cong for spreading ‘ black magic ’ 

In an attack on the Congress party for its August 5 demurrers in black clothes across the country, the Prime Minister hit out at the Congress leadership, saying, “ Those who believe in black magic will noway be suitable to win the trust of the people again ”. 

 

During the Amrit Mahotsav when the entire country is painted in the colour of the Tricolour, an attempt has been made to defame this holy occasion to cheapen the stalwart freedom fighters, he added. 


“ There are some people in our country too who are trapped in the whirlpool of negativity, immersed in despair. In similar despair, these people are also seen turning towards black magic, ” the Prime Minister said in a veiled reference to August 5 demurrers by Congress leaders, including Priyanka Gandhi Vadra by wearing black clothes. 

 

“ Those who suppose that by wearing black clothes, their period of despair will end, are ignorant that irrespective of the black magic and their belief in superstition, the public’s trust will noway be restored in them, ” he added. 


Haryana governor Bandaru Dattatreya, Union ministers Narendra Singh Tomar, Hardeep Singh Puri and Rameswar Teli were also present on the occasion. 

 

Slams political parties promising gifts 


The PM also slammed the political parties promising gifts saying, “ If there's egoism in politics, also anyone can come and advertise to give free petrol and diesel. But similar way will take down the rights of our children. It'll help the country from getting tone- reliant and increase the burden on honest taxpayers. ”
