"Also compliment Haryana Government for their initiative to make Haryana a Kerosene-free state," Pradhan said.
Pradhan said he would ensure Dhaula Village is 100 percent LPG covered, adding that both the Central and the state government wou;d seek to achieve this objective.
Haryana has become kerosene-free as the supply of the fuel has been stopped under the Public Distribution System from 1 April.
