Kovind hosts "LPG Panchayat" at Rashtrapati Bhavan

President Ram Nath Kovind today hosted an "LPG Panchayat" at Rashtrapati Bhavan, which was organised by the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas to provide a platform for LPG consumers to interact with each other, promote mutual learning and share experiences. 
Each LPG Panchayat has about 100 LPG customers coming together, near their living areas,to discuss safe and sustainable usage of LPG, its benefits and the link between clean fuel for cooking and women’s empowerment. 
The Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas intends to conduct one lakh such Panchayats across India before March 31, 2019.
Speaking on the occasion, the President said that the Ujjawala Yojana is strengthening women’s empowerment. He congratulated the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas for efforts to advance social justice through the health, welfare and empowerment of women. He was confident that the taking place of LPG Panchayats, as part of the Ujjwala Yojana process, will prove very useful.
