Soon after the Petroleum Minister Veerappa Moily announced that government may raise the cap of subsidized LPG cylinders, the Election Commission reacted promptly and sought Moily's explanation over it.

The Commission took note of govt's move to increase LPG cylinders and directed it to stop it forthwith.

Taking suo moto cognizance of Moily's announcement, the Commission held an emergency meeting soon after he said the government will raise the cap on supply of subsidised cooking gas (LPG) to nine cylinders per household a year from six at present.

The EC, at its meeting chaired by Chief Election Commissioner V S Sampath, shot off two separate letters to the Petroleum and Natural Gas Ministry and the Minister.
