The State unit of All India Democratic Women front today slammed the Union Goverment for the increase in the prices for domestic and Commercial LPG cylinders. The prices have been recently hike by Rs.50 for domestic nd Rs.350 for a commercial LPG cylinder.
State President of AIDWA Reena Singh and Secretery Falma Chauhan stated in a press release issued that the Modi government at the center has increased the prices of gas immediately after the completion of elections in three states of the country.
Women in different parts of the state are already unable to afford LPG cylinders as their price ranges from Rs 1050 to Rs 1100.  This price hike would force many user to refrain from refilling gas cylinders, and this would further force women folks in the state to switched back to the smoky cooking with firewood, they started.
The huge increase in commercial cylinder by Rs 350 would further increase the food products inflation. Already, frequent hikes in gas prices, intolerable levels of inflation and rising food prices, and rampant unemployment have made it extremely difficult for women to burn their hearth at home.  This increase shows the insensitivity of the BJP-RSS government led by Modi.
AIDWA has demanded immediate withdrawal of this unjustified price hike and has called for a strong protest across the state against this attack on the lives of women.
