NC hails LPG cap increase
Seeks further rise for JK
Jammu, Jan 17: National Conference today welcomed the central government’s decision of raising cap on LPG cylinders from 6 to 9. However, the party appealed the centre to raise the cap of subsidized cylinders for Jammu and Kashmir further as a special case.
“We welcome the Government of India’s decision to enhance subsidized LPG cylinders from 6 to 9 and appreciate the steps taken by the Omar
Abdullah government which has relentlessly worked towards this”, National Conference spokesman Tanvir Sadiq said in a statement.
“The state government had very strongly advocated the raising of subsidized cylinders and this will definitely give a huge relief to the consumers,” he said.
Tanvir said in view of the peculiar geographical diversity, severe winter and remoteness of the state, as also insufficiency of electricity and economic stress of people due to long period on militancy, “we appeal the centre to enhance the subsidized LPG cylinders further for J&K.”
