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.

Its PM Ujjwala Yojana launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi that such facilities have started percolating down to the grass root level,” Sethi said.
Among others present on the occasion include Ramesh Gupta, Anil Masoom, Gurdas Sharma, Kartar Mahajan, Pitamber Sharma, Arun Sethi, Savita Anand, Sudhir Anand, Gulshan, Harish Gupta, Madan Gopal, Tony, Raj Kumar, Ved Padha, Naresh Abrol, Saroj Gupta, Surinder Kour, Savita Khajuria and Surekha.
