Ganga Vilas Cruise Journey has started from Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh. Pm Narendra Modi flagged off the cruise via video link. The cruise will start from Varanasi and travel 3200 km through Bihar, West Bengal, and Bangladesh and reach Dibrugarh in Assam. 

At the same time, pictures of this cruise are viral on social media. Meanwhile, it is being claimed on social media that Ganga Vilas Cruise was stuck as soon as it reached Chhapra in Bihar. In this context, Samajwadi Party National President Akhilesh Yadav shared a video and caption a mockery of the BJP. “ Now do you understand the difference between a cruise and a boat? Now, will these passengers be given ‘Vayu Vilas’ by airplane?”
