Modi urges Rich People Not to Take Subsidy on LPG Cylinder

New Delhi, March 27: Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged the rich class people to give up subsidy on LPG cylinder as they can afford the non-subsidised cooking gas cylinder.

While addressing the international energy summit - Urja Sangam - on Friday at Vigyan Bhawan in the national capital, Modi appealed to the affluent class of the society to join the Give It Up gas subsidy movement.

The money saved from this movement will help the government to resolve many issues of poor people in India. More than 2 lakh 80 thousand people have refused to take subsidy on the LPG cylinders giving the benefit of Rs 100 crore to the country so far. The money will be used for the development of poor, Modi said.

India imports 77% in coal, gas and petroleum sector. In 2022, the import is likely to be decreased by 10%. The PM wants when the nation will celebrate its 75th year of Independence should be self-dependent and strong in power sector.
