Ruling UDF recommends nine LPG cylinders for consumers

Press Trust of India  |  Thiruvananthapuram 

"The recommendation will be forwarded to the government and will be considered at the next cabinet meeting," UDF convener P P Thankachan told reporters here after the Front's leadership meeting here.

The state government had earlier decided to implement the Congress High Command's instructions to all party-led governments in states to provide nine cylinders to consumers at subsidised rates.

But the Kerala government had decided to limit the additional cylinders to BPL consumers.

The meeting also discussed the issue of taking over Pariyaram and Kochi Co-operative medical colleges, against which there were several allegations of mismanagement.

A final decision on this would be taken after consultations with the Finance department, Thankachan said.

Leaders of the Indian Union Muslim League, the second largest partner in the Front, complained at the meeting that they were being isolated and criticised by leaders of other parties in the Front.
