Ujjwala Politics

Governing Biju Janata Dal claimed that Centre’s flagship programme Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana was a total failure.


Ujjwala Yojana, aims to provide five crore LPG connections in the name of women in BPL (Below Poverty Line) households across the country.
“The Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana is a total failure scheme. The Centre is providing LPG connections to the beneficiaries. However, the beneficiaries are not refilling the cylinders once the LPG is exhausted,” BJD spokesperson Pratap Keshari Deb told reporters here.
To justify its claim, the BJD pointed out that 30.48 lakh beneficiaries have been provided LPG connections from 2016-17 till July 30, 2018. However, many are not refilling the cyclider.
Of the total beneficiaries, only 8,18,786 had taken the second refill in 2016-17 while 6,45,265 till July 24, 2018.
Therefore, it is that the number of LPG connections in Odisha is coming down every year.
Under such circumstances, how can Union Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister Dharmendra Pradhan and other national BJP leaders claim that the scheme is successful, Mr.Deb asked.
 It is sheer jealousy and ignorance of BJD, Minister Mr.Pradhan retaliated.
“The statement of the BJD speaks volume of its sheer apathy towards the women, the poor and the tribals of Odisha. For a developing country like India, the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana is a model. If this scheme is not successful, it would not have overwhelmingly accepted by the women,” Mr.Pradhan said.
