Lt Gov Manoj Sinha takes ride in electric bus from Raj Bhawan to Trikuta Nagar

The government is taking many positive steps regarding environmental protection. Emphasis is now being laid on electric vehicles in the city in place of petrol-diesel-run vehicles. With this message, the Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir, Manoj Sinha, reached the people differently today. To participate in some Raj Bhavan program, he left his convoy of vehicles and arrived on an electric bus ride. The anecdote is that the Jammu Municipal Corporation had to drive to adopt a park in Trikuta Nagar on Saturday. Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha inaugurated this program, so he adopted this approach to launch this program related to environmental protection. He travelled from Raj Bhavan to Trikuta Nagar in an electric bus.

Many people were waiting for him at the place where this program was to be held in Trikuta Nagar. People felt that the Lieutenant Governor would reach here with his convoy every time. Administrative officers and local dignitaries eagerly waited for the Lt Governor to arrive. It was received that the Lieutenant Governor has left the Raj Bhavan and will reach the venue in no time. Then, people noticed that an electronic bus from SRTC was coming towards the venue. She stops, and Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha gets down from her. Seeing this, everyone was astonished.

On this, Governor Manoj Sinha said that this program is about environmental protection, so we all should contribute to success. When the Lieutenant Governor left the Raj Bhavan for Trikuta Nagar in an electronic bus, the people passing by were also surprised to see why the convoy of the Lieutenant Governor was following a bus. The movement of vehicles was stopped on many routes till the convoy passed. Still, neither the security personnel nor any traffic personnel stopped the electronic bus running in front of the convoy.

When some confused people asked the police officers posted insecurity about this, they realised that Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha himself was sitting in the electronic bus. So he left his convoy for the bus ride and instructed them to follow the bus.
