After ‘Ujjawala’ success, govt to roll out Pradhan Mantri LPG Panchayat scheme

After the success of the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana that set a target of providing 50,000,000 LPG connections to women below the poverty line, the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas now has decided to take the message down to the last mile.

Speaking exclusively to India Today, the newly elevated Cabinet minister, Dharmendra Pradhan, under whose able watch PM Ujjwala Yojana was rolled out, said the Centre is preparing the launch of a new ambitious programme, Pradhan Mantri LPG Panchayats ahead of Dusshera this year.

“We will go to women and organise panchayats. Women leaders from all walks of life including anganwadi workers, social leaders, political activists, anganwadi workers, among others will be relied on to create awareness that LPG is clean and cheap,” the minister said.
