The chief minister also said the government is preparing a scheme to make the state kerosene-free and provide LPG connection to every household within the next one-and-a-half-year.

“With a prescribed time-frame, the scheme to provide LPG connections would be given final shape soon. LPG connection in every household would not only help reduce health risks posed by burning of kerosene, wood and other fuels, but also bring down pollution,” Khattar said today.

It would also put a check on the black-marketing and misuse of kerosene, he said at a function in Hansi.

Khattar also said that his government would provide assistance to nomadic tribes for setting up their homes at one place and get their children educated.
