Early Times Report

Jammu, Feb 18: Pankaj Basotra Advocate and State General Secretary of J&K Pradesh Youth Congress has demanded free refilling of LPG cylinders provided to the BPL and rural women under Pardhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojna (PMUY).
Basotra who was on tour of Billawar Constituency met the general public and most of the women who got the free LPG connections under PMUY complained that the government and the leaders of a particular political party has provided free of cost LPG connections last year but now the cylinders provided have been exhausted and required its refilling but they don't have the source of income to get the same refilled and demanded its free refilling.
The LPG connection holders under PMUY said that after getting the connections free of cost from the government the gas cylinders have been used for three to four months by each and every family but after that the users those are mostly BPL families are not in a position to refill the same and are in a hope from the government for free refilling to some period or till their position to get the LPG cylinders refilled from their source of income. The youth congress leader while addressing the locals expressed his concern over such situation and said that the present government has issued more than one crore of free LPG connections to the BPL and other rural residents during the last two years but the refilling percentage remained as it was prior to distribution of the free LPG connections because the people who got that connections are not in a position to get the cylinders refilled from their own income.
Basotra demanded free of cost refilling of the LPG cylinders for BPL and Rural resident families for at least ten years so that the people should not feel humiliation in the society.
