Modi cuts Rs 100 on LPG refill marking Women’s Day

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a cut of Rs 100 in the price of LPG cylinder, marking the International Women’s Day.

Taking to X, Modi said: “Today, on Women’s Day, our Government has decided to reduce LPG cylinder prices by Rs 100. This will significantly ease the financial burden on millions of households across the country, especially benefiting our Nari Shakti.”

The PM said that the move was aimed at making cooking gas affordable, and also support the well-being of families, by ensuring a healthier environment.
