One of recent moves of Congress Lead UPA government which is attracting negative comments from all quarters of life is setting quota of maximum of six cylinders per year for each family. This move will mean that now first six cylinders will be provided at subsidized rate and to get next cylinders you need to pay market price.
An average middle class family in India needs at least 12 cylinders per year. By giving only six subsidized cylinders will cause extra burden of Rs 2100 on each family. The other worrying sign is high inflation rate. First it becomes difficult for people to buy food and now it will become difficult to cook food. There are still millions of households in India where monthly income is less than Rs 10000.
Such families can not take this burden and this move will cause unrest in country. It is duty of country to take measures for the well being of its population. UPA government is involved in so many corruption scandals that it can easily increase its revenue by cleaning itself of this dirt. Government and its ministers spend billions of rupees on themselves and there is no cut on such spending then why there is cut on poor man’s limited benefits?
