Sarvajananga Hitha Rakshana Forum has urged the government to make Mysuru a kerosene free city.
Forum’s state president Venugopal on Thursday said, “Food and civil supplies department should ensure LPG connections to every household in Mysuru.”
Presently, kerosene usage has come down in Bengaluru. There is sharp decrease in kerosene usage by 70%.
Only 30,000 litres kerosene is being used as against 90,000 litres earlier. Delhi and Chandigarh have been declared as kerosene free states in India.
Bangalore is set to become the first city in the state to become kerosene free.
The government should encourage kerosene consumers to shift to LPG connections as soon as possible. Poor families who lack a ration card and cannot afford to get LPG connections under the new scheme, the government should provide connections to them.
Centre’s Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana will facilitate to make the state free of kerosene, he stated. Dan McCullers Womens JerseyShare This
