PM Narendra Modi addressed the 20th episode of “Mann Ki Baat 2.0” and lauded people across the country who have dreamed to be different.
PM Modi said, he felt very happy on reading about how a local vegetable market in Bowenpally of Hyderabad is fulfilling its responsibility.
All of us have seen that in vegetable markets, a lot of produce gets spoilt for a variety of reasons. The vegetables spread all around, it spreads filth too, but the vegetable market of Bowenpally decided that it will not throw away the leftover vegetables just like that. People associated with the vegetable market decided that they will generate electricity from this.
They decided to generate electricity from waste vegetables – this is the power of innovation. Today in Bowenpally vegetable market what was once a waste, wealth is getting created from that, this is the journey of creation of wealth from waste. Nearly 10-tonnes of waste is generated there every day, which is collected in a plant. In this plant 500-units of electricity is generated every day, and about 30 Kilos of bio fuel too is generated. The vegetable market is illuminated through this electricity and the bio fuel that is generated is used to cook food in the market canteen – isn’t it a wonderful effort!
