Center plans to launch second level of ‘Give it up’

While attending a function at the Federation of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Union Minister for Urban Development, Housing and Poverty Alleviation, M. Venkaiah Naidu, revels that the center is planning to take back LPG subsidy of the households, which have an annual income above the 10 lakh par. As the subsidy for LPG, Indian government is yearly losing around Rs 40,000 crores; which is in fact a huge amount, particularly for a developing country like ours. Speaking in the function, Naidu asserts that; the new step is an effort to develop a social-financial-equilibrium.The ‘benefit transfer through bank accounts’ had saved a large chunk of money, and eliminated fake beneficiaries, Naidu added. Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had directly campaigned for the initial stage of LPG subsidy-elimination, which had motivated over a million people to ‘Give It UP’-subsidy. The campaign used broadcast and podcast media, and it made a powerful awareness. In one of his speeches, PM Modi informed country that ‘the center will direct the subsidy to actual needy’. As per statistics, our country still have 14.54 crore active LPG-subsidy-beneficiaries, which includes both needy and fake. However, some sections allege that while center is grabbing common people’s subsidy it had not dared to jolt the elite or privileged sector. Still, the peoples-representatives are enjoying highly subsidized food from the parliament canteen, it further alleged. Some political leaders, like Praful Patel, had already demanded a unified action to sort out the issue.
