Title: Need to set up new LPG outlets at Domkol, Lalbagh and Karimpur towns of Murshidabad Parliamentary Constituency, West Bengal.
SHRI MOINUL HASSAN (MURSHIDABAD): Sir, my constituency, Murshidabad is basically based on rural area with around 11 lakh voters. With the constant development in economic condition the living standards of the people is also growing. Hence, there is a growing demand for domestic LPG connections. But within the seven Assembly Constituencies there is only one LPG dealership in Lalbagh, which is a Sub-Divisional Headquarter. Obviously, this increase in demand for LPG has disturbed the curve of demand and supply resulting in acute shortage of supply of LPG.
Meanwhile, in last December, the Government of West Bengal established a new sub-division known as Domkol Sub-Division of four blocks with its headquarter at Domkol.
Lots of applications for LPG connection are still pending with the existing dealer and many more people cannot reach the dealer for registration because of the distance. Hence, I would urge upon the Government to come out with a new dealership at Domkol, Lalbagh and Karimpur towns. This will indeed solve the problem of growing demand for LPG connection and also increase employment and above all generate revenue to the Government.
