पुरी के एक छोटे से गांव में में रहने वाली एक बूढ़ी विधवा माँ, उसकी तीन बेटियां जिनमें 2 दिव्यांग व बेटा मजदूरी करता है। ऐसी माँ का घर बनाने का काम श्री @narendramodi जी ने किया है। [1/2]@BJP4Odisha #PhirEkBaarModiSarkar pic.twitter.com/zhAzafVjbr

Weren't we told that Ujjwala Yojana was a smashing success and that mothers and sisters of poorest of poor have got gas cylinders at their homes?
Can't spot a gas cylinder here atleast.
