Keep infrastructure development away from politics: PM
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday urged to keep the development of infrastructure away from politics. He said that the country’s infrastructure should be a mission to benefit many generations, not 5 years of politics. If political parties have to compete, there should be competition in the quality of infrastructure, competition on speed and scale.
Prime Minister was speaking after flagging off the first train to run on the 351-km New Bhaupur-New Khurja section in Uttar Pradesh of the Eastern Dedicated Freight Corridor. He also inaugurated the operation control centre for the Corridor at Prayagraj via videoconference.

TP Renewable Microgrid, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tata Power, announced that it had inaugurated its first 5kW Bio-gas generating plant at Kamalpura village in Muzaffarpur district of Bihar.
The company constructed this plant in association with Grassroots Energy. The plant consumes cow dung which is procured from nearby villages and then it is processed through a Bio-digester to generate methane gas. This gas is then used to drive a specially designed 5kW generator to generate electricity which is fed to the adjoining 30kW microgrid generating station.
