• LPG pipelines to kitchens soon, says MP

    If everything goes as planned, pipelines will bring liquid petroleum gas (LPG) to your kitchens in 2-3 years. The Indian Oil Corporation and Adani Company have taken up a scheme that envisages laying of pipelines 53km around Hubballi and Dharwad and 2,300km in the twin cities to supply cooking gas. MP Prahlad Joshi, who held a meeting of stakeholders at the deputy commissioner’s office on Wednesday, said the scheme was sanctioned by the Centre last year but the work of laying underground pipeline could not be taken up as the roads were being dug up for other works. A meeting of officials of the Hubballi-Dharwad municipal corporation and the district administration to finalize the tender will be held soon. “Under the Deendayal Rural Development Programme, Rs 400 million has been released and the amount will be spent on installing smart boards in schools and solar grid at government hospitals,” Joshi said.
