While addressing the rally of Yuva Morcha Thrissur, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that Kochi refinery will propel the state’s growth and will help reduce 10 per cent import of oil and save foreign remittances. He also said, “We are very close to our goal to provide a cooking gas connection to every home. Nearly six crore poor women have received a free cooking gas connection. India’s energy needs are growing. That is why we have speeded up the development of oil and gas infrastructure in the country.” He added that Kochi will now have the biggest refinery in India.
