Gas shortage

September passed in chaos as the Central Government put cap on the issuance of subsidized LPG cylinders up to six a year. Although the cap was applicable to the whole country, the people of valley became the worst sufferers since winters are about to set in. Even a child can very well explain the complexities of life here in winters. The problem is worsened by the severe power cuts after durbar move to Jammu. In Kashmir there are limited gas agencies catering to the needs of lakhs of people. How is it possible for the people to get the supply hassle free when there are bottlenecks in this system? Infirm and old, women and children can be seen queuing up and waiting for LPG laden trucks to get the LPG cylinders. Why was the home delivery of cylinders stopped? Agencies make tall claims that people can contact them for home delivery but that’s a blatant lie. Even in Jammu such long queues are uncommon.
