GK NEWS NETWORK
Jammu, Apr 19: The government has embarked upon an ambitious plan to open Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) agencies in each block of the State to provide cooking gas to the people at their doorsteps.
The allotment of gas agencies would be made in a transparent way through draw of lots.
This was announced by the Minister for Consumer Affairs and Public distribution and transport, Qamar Ali Akhoon, while speaking at function organized in observance of the birth anniversary of the founder of Indian constitution Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, at Reasi last evening.
The Minister, according to an official statement, said the coalition Government is endeavouring to provide all the basic facilities to the people at the gross roots level and every body, irrespective of region, caste and creed would get justice.
He said the Government has decided to provide temporary ration cards to the nomadic Gujars and Bakerwals so that they could get ration while migrating from one place to another without any difficulty.
He said all the left out families of Gujar and Bakerwals would be provided ration cards, adding that both the Divisional Commissioners of Kashmir and Jammu have been asked to finalize the lists of genuine beneficiaries in this regard, at the earliest. He said problem of other migrant people, on account of ration facilities, would also be solved shortly. He said drought hit people of the 299 affected villages, of Reasi District have been provided free ration for three months.
