PM Modi launches countrys 1st solar-powered e-boats in Varanasi
03 May 2016 Current Affairs: Launching the country's first solar powered e-boats in river Ganga in his parliamentary constituency - Varanasi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took a jibe on Congress by saying, "Wo sarkarey gayi jo sirf amiro ko diya karti thi, ye sarkar unkey liye hai jinka duniya me koyi nahi (Gone are the governments that gave everything to wealthy people, this government is for those who have nobody for help)."

Mentioning how Dalits, tribal and backward class people are benefitted with his Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojana, Modi also targeted banks indirectly on liquor giant Vijay Mallya episode. "Poor of this country do not want loans in thousands of crores or rupees. Their requirement is meager. The way these poor people are repaying the banks should be judged that who is really `rich' by heart." He also cautioned boatmen not to misuse their earning, which is going to be increased by conversion of their manual or diesel motor boats into e-boats, for consuming liquor.
