‘GOVT SLEEPING ON LPG CRISIS’
People being compelled for protests: Welfare committee
Srinagar, Nov 8: The residents of Pandach and adjoining areas are up in arms against the government for “failing to provide people respite from the LPG crisis.”
The residents under the banner of Social Welfare Committee Pandach held a meeting and resolved that the recent strike call given by the Kashmir Economic Alliance head Muhammad Yasin Khan was justified. The meeting among others was attended by welfare committee President Abdul Ahad Parray, Vice President, Hameed Khan, General Secretary Mir Tariq Ahmed and Chief Organizor Muhammad Yousuf Mir.
Speaking on the occasion the welfare committee Chairman Haji Sheikh Muhammad Sadiq said the government was compelling people to go for “hartals or protests because the LPG distribution and renewal of gas connections was not being done properly.”
“People may soon have to go for strike again because the situation is worsening as the winter is approaching fast,” Sadiq said. He said for Soura and adjoining areas mere one or two gas agencies like Kashmir Gas Agency having area of domain upto Sonamarg were not enough. “How can single dealer do justice with such a big area?” Sadiq argued.
The meeting appealed the government to increase the number of gas dealers in the area or face protests.
