Govt considering raising cap on subsidised LPG cylinders
In other countries both electricity and gas is used," he said.
This did not satisfy the BJP members who were on their feet to press for their demand for rolling back the cap.
They shouted "Remove the LPG cap", "Stop LPG politics", while TMC members walked into the Well and demanded that the subsidy be increased. Moily said even after the capping of LPG cylinders the subsidy burden on it is Rs 36,000 crore.
Members of SAD, JD(U) and other parties were also on their feet.
Sudip Bandopadhyaya (TMC) said each family should be allowed 24 cylinders per year at the rate of two LPG bottles per month.
SAD member Harsimrat Kaur said there is need for increasing the number of gas agencies as people have to stand in serpentine queues to get cylinders.
JD(U) members walked into the Well to protest against the decision but party president Sharad Yadav asked them to go back to their seats.
