    propose + to V / ~ing

    Some people say we can't use gerund after the verb propose and others say we can use gerund as well as to infinitive as an object of the verb 'propose'.

    Please tell me the proper usage of 'propose'.

    I don't have a problem with using a gerund after 'propose'.
