    The Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari, while answering a question related to EV Charging Stations during 'Question Hour' at the Parliament, made a request to the honourable speaker, asking for EV Chargers to be placed in the parking lots of members. He said, "I will request the honourable speaker sir, now this is the time for the Parliament, to start electric charging stations on parking spaces giving this facility to the honourable members of the house by which they can purchase electric cars, and can come here to charge their cars, in the Parliament premises."


    He went on to state that this facility will be provided on all government office premises so that more individuals can turn towards green mobility. It was just after this mention that Om Birla, Speaker Of Lok Sabha interrupted Gadkari to state that the charging for members will have to pay to get their cars charged.
