New Delhi, Sept.24 (ANI): Veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan has joined the “GiveItUp Movement” of the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas.
Acknowledging the gesture, the Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Petroleum and Natural Gas, Dharmendra Pradhan, said such a noble gesture by Bachchan would surely inspire many others to join a movement committed to bring smiles to millions of poor households by providing them access to clean fuel (LPG).
As on date, more than 30 lakh people have surrendered their LPG subsidy in response to the appeal made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Modi has promised that the money saved from this effort will be utilised to provide LPG connection to poor households. (ANI)
