“I am asking the PM to bring back Lalit Modi. This is a big opportunity for him (Modi). Let him bring back Lalit Modi and clear all the scam in cricket,” Rahul told the media in parliament complex.

“I am here to defend this country from the RSS, I am here to defend this country from Narendra Modi,” Gandhi said.

“I want to tell Modiji that the youth is slowly understanding the nexus (between black money and the political system).”

Gandhi added that the prime minister had “no guts”.

“After losing the election against him, I thought he (Modi) was a strong guy. But now I think he is not,” he said, before heading to join a protest by Congress members against the government.

Modi's LPG scheme reduced household air pollution: Study, VOA

The Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (PMUY), a pet project of Prime Minister Narendra Modi that aims to provide every household Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) replacing wood or coal fuel, has been found useful in tackling household air pollution, a new report said.

The study, “The India State-Level Disease Burden Initiative”, released by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI), Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and The Lancet, stated that in 2017 in India 12.4 lakh deaths were caused due to air pollution, of which 4.8 lakh were due to household air pollution.

“There is increasing political momentum in India to address air pollution. Household air pollution is reducing in India faciliated by the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana. The findings systematically document the variations among states, which would serve as a useful guide for making further progress in reducing the adverse impact of air pollution in the country,” Proffesor Balram Bhargava, Secretary, Health Research, Ministry of Health, and Director General, ICMR, said.

According to the report, reasons for the household air pollution are mainly residential burning of solid fuels for cooking and to some extent heating. The major types of such fuel are wood, dung, agricultural residues, coal and charcoal.

The study found that states like Bihar, Jharkhand, Odisha, Chhattisgarh, Assam, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Meghalaya, who stood low in Semi Demographic Index (SDI – a composite measure based on per capita income, average educational attainment and fertility rate), were using more solid fuels.
