Omar convenes high-level meeting
Srinagar, Oct 24: Chief minister Omar Abdullah has convened a high level meeting here on Thursday to discuss the prevailing LPG crisis that has enraged the Valleyites.
According to the local news gathering agency KNS, besides ministers, officials and LPG dealers are scheduled to attend the meeting.
Quoting sources the news agency reports that given the brewing resentment among the masses over the LPG crisis, Chief Minster may order distribution of gas without requisite papers for some time, though on non-subsidized rates. “Chief Minster is likely to ask gas dealers to distribute gas on non-subsidized rates till the documental formalities are completed by the consumers,” a senior government functionary told KNS.
Meanwhile, according to sources some senior officers from the Union Ministry of Petroleum are also likely to be present in the meeting.
Though state government had dispatched a high level team of ministers to New Delhi where they urged Prime Minster Dr Manmohan Singh to announce special gas package for Jammu and Kashmir, the delegation returned without getting any commitment from the PM on the issue.
