IEP Chandigarh, August 29
Haryana Chief Minister Sh. Manohar Lal expressed his gratitude to Prime Minister Sh. Narender Modi for the announcement of reducing gas cylinder prices by Rs 200. On the occasion of Rakshabandhan, the Prime Minister’s decision was seen as a gift to all sisters.
Welcoming the Union Cabinet’s decision led by Prime Minister Sh Narender Modi to lower cylinder prices by Rs. 200, he said that this move, made just before the festive day, was likened to a Rakhi gift for millions of women across the nation, he added.
He said that the Central Government’s decision to provide an additional subsidy of Rs. 200 on subsidized cylinders and a Rs. 200 discount on non-subsidized cylinders is particularly a relief for middle-class families. He said that this decision, coming before the upcoming festivals, is truly a valuable gift for households and middle-class families.
The Chief Minister highlighted that the Ujjwala Yojana’s cylinders, which used to be available at a Rs. 200 discount, will now be accessible at a reduced price of Rs. 400.
