New Delhi: As it was expected after the interfere with Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, UPA government has decided to raise the annual cap on subsidized LPG cylingers to 12 from the existing 9 in one year. Meanwhile BJP has said that People of the country are in no mood to appreciate Congress.
Union Petroleum Minister Veerappa Moily said that in addition to the 9 subsidized cylinders for one year, there will be one cylinders given in February and one in March.
Congress government wants people to cheer about their likely announcement of increasing the cap of subsidised LPG cylinders from 9 to 12 per family per year. People of the country are in no mood to appreciate Congress. Instead they are asking a simple question that who brought LPG cap of 6 cylinders in the first place?
The decision to cap LPG cylinders in the nick of overall price rise was an anti people decision. People will not forget and forgive the UPA Government for this step. Till July 2012 all families were getting required number of LPG cylinders at a subsidised cost. UPA Government withdrew it in August 2012.
When NDA Government demitted office the price of subsidised LPG was Rs.244 now it is Rs. 415 and people have to purchase each cylinder at the open market price of Rs. 1241. The much hyped DBT is yet to reach and benefit many families.
