While addressing the rally of Yuva Morcha in Thrissur, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that he was happy to be in Thrissur, the cultural capital of Kerala. He said, “During my last visit, I dedicated Kollam bypass which was stalled for decades. Today, I am here to dedicate Kochi refinery and other projects which will make the life of people easier. Four and a half years ago, we launched a major effort to make all kitchens smoke-free. In 2014, only 55% of all homes in India had a cooking gas connection. Today, that number stands at over 90%.”
