At a time when Delhi government led by CM Arvind Kejriwal has the largest electric bus fleet for public transportation ,Jharkhand government led by CM Hemant Soren is gearing up to procure diesel buses for villagers in Jharkhand. 

Every body knows, the entire world is grappling with climate change. The Delhi government is among major states where state government has put emphasis on converting the city's public transport to cleaner fuel to reduce pollution. 

 In Jharkhand, in a meeting chaired by Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren on Tuesday, the state government had decided to propose a public transport scheme, ‘Mukhyamantri Gram Gaadi Yojna’, for the rural population of the state. The CM plan is set to be approved in the Cabinet meeting on Wednesday for faster approval. 

Starting with a fleet of 250 buses in its first phase of implementation, the scheme aims to connect the remote, tribal and rural areas with other parts of the state. Although a timeline is not yet fixed.

The plan had been in the talks since early this year. The meeting was held by the CM to expedite the process.No doubt,the public transport will help rural citizens, school and college students.

Apparently, ahead of the General Lok Sabha and Assembly polls in 2024, the Soren government has prime aim is to connect rural areas with block, sub-division and district headquarters and thereby launch its outreach plan. 

 Of course, if implemented, it will make people living in remote villages get access to an accessible transportation system, the diesel buses may harm climate.
