JAMMU: The importance of switching over to cooking gas from other means of fuel can be very well understood by none other than those women who had been using coal, wood or kerosene to cook food for their families in worst conditions. Now when under Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana these women have been given cooking gas cylinders their lives have completely been transformed.
This was stated by former Minister, MLA and BJP Spokesperson Priya Sethi after distributing free LPG connections to eligible women beneficiaries hailing from BPL and SC/ST families under Prime Minister Ujjwala Yojana at Jammu East on Wednesday.
