On the fifth of February, 2019, Shri Dharmendra Pradhan, Union Minister for petroleum and natural gas, inaugurated the WLPGA 2019 Asia LPG summit. The two-day event will be focusing on ‘LPG – Energy for Life.’ Estimated to be attended by more than 1000 delegates from over 20 countries, all together deliberating over a series of subjects including how India’s successful Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana can become a viable model for other countries to replicate, particularly those striving to provide clean cooking fuel to its people. The Ujjwala Yojana has been successfully providing a clean, smoke-free fuel to all corners of India and bring down indoor pollution levels by a huge extent. This statement can be proved by the fact that LPG coverage has gone up from 55% in 2014 to 90% now.
