Gas dealers blame oilcos, state admin for LPG crisis

Call for clear-cut policy on distribution

AAQIB ASHRAF

Srinagar, Nov 2: Facing severe criticism from different quarters, the gas dealers today blamed oil companies and state administration for “failing to tackle the prevailing LPG crisis.”
 The dealers demanded that the oil companies and state administration should “come up with a clear-cut policy vis-à-vis the distribution of LPG to save inconvenience to the general public.”
 “We are facing problems from the both ends; on one side the oil companies press us to complete the verification of consumers immediately, on the other the public pressure is mounting day by day as people are running out of cooking gas,” the dealers said.
 The dealers said it won’t be possible for them to complete the verification of all the consumers in a “short period” of time. “There are customers who don’t have the requisite documents. They have to reconstruct the documents, which obviously is going to take sometime,” they said.
 Meanwhile, the All Kashmir LPG Distributors’ Association has sought “cooperation of the general public to complete the verification.”
 “We implore all the consumers to bear with us in this hour of crisis, so as to ensure smooth and hassle free distribution of cooking gas,” the association members in a meeting said.
 They said they regretted any inconvenience and hardships caused to the consumers due to operation of new LPG policy that envisages updating/verification/KYC norms, etc.
 “We are doing our best to mitigate the problems of the common people and are working during day and night to accomplish the task envisaged by the new LPG policy,” they said.
