Kathmandu faces gas crisis again

Kathmandu, August 9: Shortage of LP gas has been seen in Kathmandu valley after gas entrepreneurs closed the clearance of Indian tankers, arriving at the customs point of Nepal, carrying LP gas from India since yesterday.

LP Gas Industry Association closed clearance of gas tankers saying the government did not fulfill its 16-point demands. The Association has launched phase-wise agitations since August 7.

Acting Chairman of the Association, Shiva Prasad Ghimire,  also warned of stopping selling of gas across the nation from August 15 if the government does not start positive initiatives on their demands.

Meanwhile, The Consumers’ Forum Nepal (CFN) has protested the decision of the LP Gas suppliers to wage protests. In a press release, CFN flayed the decision of the cooking gas suppliers to launch protest programmes, putting forth various demands, all of a sudden.
