Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi started a scheme named Pradhan Mantri Ujwalla Yojna to provide Five crores LPG connections to families living below the poverty line. This is going to help women who need to deal with several problems while cooking food for their beloved. For example, they need to collect wood, they need to prepare Gobar Upla, and so many things they need to get done.
Many times, they need to walk for long distances to arrange the things as these facilities are not easily available due to reducing count of forests. And, even after they have collected all the things, when it comes to light the Chulha, it is one of the most difficult part because it generates a lot of harmful smoke that Ladies in the home need to deal with every day. That smoke is not good for their health, but they still face that so that their loved ones can easy have tasty food.
