Prime News, National, Karnataka, Fuel, Politics, Mysuru, January 29:- There is nothing new about piped gas supply. Many states have already adopted this system and I don’t know why there is a hue and cry over this, asked Mysuru-Kodagu Member of Parliament Pratap here on Saturday (January 29).
He was talking to reporters over reported opposition expressed by Bharatiya Janata Party MLAs L Nagendra and S A Ramadass.
Simha said, “The new system for the supply of gas is good in the long run. At present, people are paying Rs 904 for a refill. To avoid some of the problems that go with it, piped gas supply should be adopted. This was started in Gujarat way back. The Centre has okayed the project to be implemented in Bengaluru, Mysuru, Ramanagara, Mandya, Tumakuru, Hassan, Shivamogga, Hubballi, Dharwad, Chitradurga and Kalaburgi. Supply of gas through the pipe will help us save money. If a road is dug up, it has to be filled properly. I don’t know why people are raising questions unnecessarily.”
The BJP Lok Sabha member said, “After becoming Prime Minister, Narendra Modi has implemented many schemes. Highways, toilets and power supply to villages are some of the schemes implemented by the Centre. Jal Jivan scheme is another important step. There is a huge difference between LPG and LNG. With the city growing rapidly, switching over to LNG is a good move for more than one reason.”
