Indian companies can make the best electric cars: Nitin Gadkari
NEW DELHI: Amid reports of US electric car maker Tesla putting its plan to sell its products in India on hold, Union road transport minister Nitin Gadkari said on Saturday the government was never in favor from a company that manufactures its cars in China and sells it here. He said Indian automakers have the ability to produce the world’s best electric cars.
Speaking at an event after witnessing a vehicle crash test in Pune, Gadkari said: “We have all the car brands here. It doesn’t matter if one or two of them are not there. We told a company that manufacturing in China and selling cars does not work here (China mein banakar yahan bechoge, aisa nehin jamega† If you want to come here make in India. I am convinced that our car manufacturers can make better vehicles than others. We have young talented designers and they are doing better.”
In a candid confession, the minister said he had listened to the car manufacturers and dropped the proposal to require trucks to have air-conditioned cabs for their drivers. “I agree that I listened to you and withdrew the idea of ​​an air-conditioned cab into trucks. In other countries, fixed driving times apply to drivers. But here they even drive until 6 pm. They drive in inhumane condition,” he said.
