The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today appealed to well-to-do sections of Indian society to voluntarily give up LPG subsidy, so that the benefit of the same could be shared more widely with poorer sections of society. Delivering the inaugural address at the global energy summit – Urja Sangam-2015 – in New Delhi, the Prime Minister said about 2.8 lakh people from across the country had already given up LPG subsidy. He said this was an important contribution for the service of the poor.

The Prime Minister complimented ONGC Videsh Ltd, Engineers India Ltd, and Barauni Refinery, for their successful journey of five decades, and called upon India's energy sector to plan for the next five decades with a global perspective. He said India, with one-sixth of the world's population, should shoulder one-sixth of the world's energy responsibility, hence contributing to global prosperity.

The Prime Minister highlighted various achievements of the Union Government, and reforms initiated in the energy sector over the last ten months. He said these reforms were motivated by the quest for greater energy security, which is both a necessity and responsibility. He said transfer of LPG subsidy directly into bank accounts through the world's largest cash subsidy transfer programme in the world – PAHAL – had resulted in elimination of leakages, and curbing corruption. He also mentioned deregulation of diesel prices, ethanol blended petrol to help sugarcane farmers, promotion of bio-diesel, and extension of the gas grid in eastern India, as some of the other major initiatives of the Government. The Prime Minister said the Union Government aims to extend piped natural gas (PNG) to one crore houses over the next five years.

Prime Minister said that the BRICS Business Council created a roadmap to achieve the $ 500 billion Intra-BRICS trade target by the next summit and identification of economic complementarities among BRICS countries would be important in this effort. The partnership agreement between New Development Bank and BRICS Business Council would be useful for both the institutions, he added.

PM requested BRICS countries and NDB to join Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure initiative. He also requested that the work of establishing the Regional Office of NDB in India should be completed soon. This will give a boost to projects in priority areas, he added.
