Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch solar powered boats apart from distributing 1,000 e-rickshaws to people in his Lok Sabha constituency, Varanasi, on 1 May.
PM Modi, who will arrive in the temple city from Ballia, will first distribute 1,000 e-rickshaws at DLW ground here and then head to Assi ghat, where he will launch solar powered boats, Sanjay Bhardwaj, BJP's eastern UP media in-charge, said.
The PM will flag off a fleet of 11 e-boats following which he will also interact with the boatmen at Assi ghat, Bhardwaj said.
Tight security arrangements will be made for the visit by the administration which is already on an alert after a hand grenade was seized at a district court last Saturday.
