Amit Shah expresses gratitude to PM for cooking gas subsidy

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Tuesday hailed the government’s announcement of a Rs 200 per cylinder cut in prices of domestic cooking gas, saying the festival of Raksha Bandhan is about “increasing happiness within the family” and this reduction will provide more comfort to sisters and make their life easier.

The government on Tuesday announced a Rs 200 per cylinder cut in prices of domestic cooking gas. At present, a 14.2-kg LPG cylinder in the national capital costs Rs 1,103 – more than double the rate it came for in May 2020. It will cost Rs 903 when the decision is implemented from Wednesday.

For Ujjwala beneficiaries, the price will be Rs 703 after considering the continuing Rs 200 per cylinder subsidy.

“The festival of Raksha Bandhan is about increasing happiness within the family. The reduction in gas prices will provide more comfort to sisters in my family and make their life easier. May every sister of mine be happy and healthy, this is my wish from God,” Modi said in a post in Hindi on X.

Meanwhile, Union Home Minister Amit Shah expressed gratitude to the Prime Minister for approving a subsidy of Rs 200 on each cooking gas cylinder.

“Modi ji has approved a subsidy of Rs 200 on domestic cylinders for the mothers and sisters of the country on the auspicious occasion of Raksha Bandhan and Onam. With this decision, the total subsidy of gas cylinders available under Ujjwala Yojana will now be Rs 400.

“This will provide relief to the public from the rising inflation due to the changing global scenario. Along with this, the cabinet has also approved 75 lakh new Ujjwala connections, which will give freedom to poor and needy mothers from the curse of smoke. Heartfelt gratitude to PM @narendramodi ji for these public welfare decisions,” Shah tweeted in Hindi.
