As India continues to be an underdeveloped country, the politicians hoodwink the voters and win elections by promising basic amenities such as drinking water, electricity, and cooking gas which are scarce across the country. Click here for details.


Over 100 beneficiaries of the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana, interacted Tuesday with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, at his residence.

The female beneficiaries, who belong to various States across the country, are in New Delhi for the LPG Panchayat, which was hosted by President Ram Nath Kovind at Rashtrapati Bhawan.

During the informal interaction with Narendra Modi, the beneficiaries explained how their lives had improved through the use of LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) cylinders.

The Prime Minister encouraged them to talk on various aspects of their day-to-day life. In response to their observations, Modi mentioned the Saubhagya Yojana, which has been launched by the Union Government to provide electricity connections to every home.

He also emphasized the need to end all forms of discrimination against the girl child. He exhorted the gathering to work towards ensuring cleanliness in their villages.

He said this would improve the health of the entire village, much the same way as the Ujjwala Yojana had improved the health of their family members.

Praising and thanking the Prime Minister for the Ujjwala Yojana, some of the beneficiaries also took the opportunity to discuss other specific development challenges in their areas.

Union Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas, Dharmendra Pradhan, was present on the occasion.
