Bangalore, Nov 20: "Illegal" LPG gas connection holders in Karnataka received a chance to rejoice. They must be thinking to cheers for the chief minister, Sadananda Gowda and Food and Civil Supplies Minister, Shobha Karandlaje. The ministry on Saturday, Nov 19 declared that the government will not take any action against those who are enjoying "illegal" LPG gas connections, at least not now.

"The CM has decided not take immediate action against illegal gas connections. We have to look into many aspects before disconnecting them and we need some more time," said Shobha in Bellary on Saturday.

There were reports that gas agencies, following a strict instruction from the Food & Civil Supply department, had tried to disconnect all "illegal" LPG gas connections. Earlier, Karnataka civil supplies and consumers affairs ministry found that the state has 75,55,156 gas connections of which 34,05,509 were unlawful. Click here to Login to Ahara Karnataka Website.
