He stated, “Rajiv Ji (Rajiv Bajaj) has taken the initiative to develop motorcycles running on 100 percent bioethanol.” He further announced, “We have already inaugurated three ethanol pumps.” Providing further details, the minister mentioned, “Indian Oil has committed to launching 400 ethanol pumps following my request.” This initiative aims to enhance accessibility of biofuel for the general public.
