Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, on September 13, launched Nagpur’s first CNG and LNG station at Rawmatt CNG Pump located near Automotive Square in the city. Also, present during the inauguration were Nagpur Mayor Nanda Jichkar, Vaddadi Subbarao (Director, Rawwmat Industries Private Limited), Padmesh Gupta, Kaustubh Gupta, Bunty Kukde (Chairman, Transport Committee, Nagpur Municipal Corporation), among other prominent people of the city.

The launch of the LNG and CNG mother station in Nagpur by Rawmatt Industries Private Limited is a step towards realising Gadkari’s vision of using alternate and eco-friendly fuel instead of petrol and diesel. Rawmatt has credited its technology partner INOXCVA, which is India’s largest cryogenic engineering company, and Nagpur Municipal Corporation for successfully adapting and executing the concept of CNG.

After the inauguration, Gadkari spoke at length with media persons about the advantages of alternate fuel and also extended his best wishes and gratitude to Rawmatt Industries for bringing CNG to Nagpur.

Compressed Natural Gas (methane stored at high pressure) is an alternate fuel, which is economical, emits less noxious gases, and is thus a viable replacement of gasoline, deisel fuel, and propane/LPG. From reduced exhaust emissions to reduced energy costs, CNG offers a range of sustainable, safer, economical and empowering solutions against conventional fuels and petroleum products, Because it’s cleaner, safer, powerful, cost-effective and indigenous, CNG is the best alternative fuel in the industry today.

Speaking about the difficulties in bringing CNG to Nagpur, Vaddadi Subbarao (Director, Rawmatt Industries) told Nation Next, It was a great challenge to bring LNG by road tankers to Nagpur and then convert to CNG as there is no natural gas pipeline closer to Nagpur. In bigger cities like Delhi and Mumbai, there is a City Gas Distribution (CGD) network to distribute CNG to stations and households. Rawmatt has taken all care to ensure appropriate supply chain management and proper inventory systems to ensure regular supply of CNG to Nagpur.

Subbarao added, We bring in LNG from Dahej Terminal in Gujarat with the help of tankers. Transporting LNG as compared to CNG is easy and cost effective. After LNG arrives in Nagpur at our facility, we convert it into CNG with the help of vaporisation and further transport it to daughter stations by CNG cascades mounted on vehicles.

The mother station at Automotive Square will be able to supply 23,000 kgs of CNG in Nagpur. It also has an additional facility to provide 15,000 kgs of Bio CNG. Currently two daughter stations (one at Khapri depot and second one at Wadi depot) are getting ready and will be operational in coming days.

Established in March 2017 in the centrally located city of Nagpur, Rawmatt Industries Private Limited is leading the field of manufacturing and supplying of CNG fuel dispensers. The company is committed to taking India close to its 0% emission goal, bossting the public transport with alternatives, providing affordable fuel solutions and extending the reach of CNG and LNG vehicles even to the rural areas.

Radhika Dhawad | Nagpur

Dance enthusiasts, friends and students came together and paid a heartfelt tribute in the loving memory of renowned western dance teacher late Benedict Peters fondly called as Tiki Peters. Moreover, the get-together also gave a chance to enthusiasts who wished to express their love for dance. The get together was held at Money Plant Terrace in Laxmi Nagar on March 13.

Hosts – businessman Dhananjay Sakharkar and Deputy Executive Editor at ABP Majha Sarita Kaushik – along with other guests, reminisced some memorable anecdotes of Tiki that lifted spirits of all as they went down the memory lane. 

Fondly remembering Peters, Sarita Kaushik told Nation Next, “Tiki was a dear friend for whom Dhananjay and I arranged this small get-together. He was a gifted teacher who danced like no one else. His moves were fabulous; no body could teach better than him. He had a commendable sense of aesthetics when it came to dance. I’m glad his elder sister and brother are equally talented and will continue Tiki’s legacy of excellence.”

Dhananjay, who had known Peters for nearly four decades, said, “My association Tiki dates back to over 40 years. He taught  us many dance forms including Jive, Salsa, Disco, Ballroom, Waltz, Cha Cha Cha. More than anything else, Tiki was an exceptional human being – with amazing sense of humour! When Tiki passed away, Sarita and I arranged a small party where we served everything that he loved  – veg puff, macarons, cakes, soft drinks and of course music to dance! This was our small gesture for our dear friend who, I’m certain, was smiling from the heavens that evening!”

Tiki Peters, who was brought up in an Anglo-Indian culture – something that was predominant in city’s Mohan Nagar area, passed away in November last year.

Chairman of Democratic Progressive Azad Party (DPAP) and former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad said he never imagined he would receive such love and warmth after quitting the Congress party. Azad, on Saturday, remarked, “I had never thought that after leaving Congress, the people of Jammu and Kashmir would receive me with this kind of warmth and love.”

Azad said that after quitting the grand old party, more and more people were joining his new party; they have faith in him. He said, “It gives me more responsibilities and challenges to meet the expectations of people. People feel dejected and disappointed with the present governing system.” 

Azad said he aimed to build a better and progressive Jammu Kashmir where the future of youth is secure. He said if his party came to power, he would bring the massive developmental revolution across the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir.

Azad also asserted that his politics was based on inclusiveness, development and peace. Speaking at the public meeting in Eidgah at Srinagar, Azad, said that unlike other parties who try to divide people for political benefit, he aimed to develop Jammu and Kashmir inclusively where each person irrespective of religion, caste and creed felt politically and socially empowered.

Azad concluded, “Be it statehood, land or jobs, I will lead my people from the front to secure their rights. My people are my priority. I have come back to Jammu Kashmir only for my people otherwise, I had all the opportunities I could desire ever in my life.”

In a rather shocking incident amid the high security C20 conference in Nagpur, the Public Relations Office of Union Minister Nitin Gadkari again received two death threat calls  today morning (March 21). According to the information received, once again there have been threatening calls received in the name of a criminal named Jayesh Pujari alias Jayesh Kantha.

Employees of the senior BJP leader’s office alerted Nagpur Police and security has been beefed up outside the office in Khamla and the leader’s residence on Wardha Road. However, cops are yet to ascertain whether the call was actually made by the same person who had issued death threats to Gadkari in January. 

On January 14 this year, an unidentified extortionist, claiming to speak on behalf of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, threatened to kill Gadkari in an explosion if he didn’t pay him ₹100 crore.

The caller threatened Gadkari though a phone call on the landline number of his Public Relations Office (PRO) at Khamla in Nagpur (around one kilometre away from his residence) at 11:25 am, 11:32 am, and 12:30 pm.

The employees of the office alerted the police after the threat call, where in the caller also threatened to blow up Gadkari’s office. Nagpur Police immediately beefed up the security outside Gadkari’s office and residence. 

It was later revealed that a notorious gangster named Jayesh Pujari had threatened to kill Gadkari by allegedly making the three threat calls illegally using a cellphone while he was lodged in Belgaum Jail at Karnataka. 

In 2016, Pujari had even escaped after breaking the jail. The gangster, in the past too, had threatened several senior officers and other people in a similar manner.
