New Delhi: India's first AC double-decker electric bus was inaugurated in Mumbai by Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari on Thursday.

"Ushering Sustainable Revolution! It gives me immense pleasure to launch the Ashok Leyland's Electric Double-Decker Bus in Mumbai today," the minister tweeted. According to him, the project will give a dynamic boost to the sustainable transport sector.

In another tweet, Gadkari said, "Giving Dynamic Boost to the sustainable transportation sector, such initiatives are cost-effective solutions & achieve PM Shri Narendra Modi Ji's vision of Aatmanirbhar Bharat by cutting down oil imports and promoting indigenous resource & services."
