In response to the initiative taken by Union Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan in calling up one VIP everyday across the country to request them to give up buying subsidised cooking gas (LPG), Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das has voluntarily surrendered his subsidised LPG connection to promote target subsidies for those actually deserving.

Reportedly Pradhan surrendered his subsidised LPG connection soon after becoming a minister and has since then been buying gas at market rate to ensure that the subsidised fuel reaches only those needing it.

On Pradhan’s plea, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi and Power Minister Piyush Goyal too have given up subsidised LPG.

“Rich and affluent people who can afford to buy market price LPG should voluntarily give up subsidised connection,” added Pradhan.
