Modi’s GIVE IT UP Campaign-Amazing Response-10 Lakhs
Listening to Modi’s call to give up gas subsidy, about 10lakh people gave up their subsidies. Uttar Pradesh stood first on the list. As many as 2.09 lakh members gave up their gas subsidy in this state. Maharashtra occupied the second place on the list.
Each consumer is provided 12 cylinders per year by petroleum agencies. On each cyclinder, government bears a subsidy of Rs. 207, which amounts to a burden of Rs. 20 thousand crores to the government in total. Under this context, Modi requested all well to do to give up their gas subsidies so that they could aid a cylinder to the under privileged. Thus Modi’s Give It UP Scheme received great response.
