The general public facing over a month long gas scarcity got some relief after receiving cylinders from National Trading Limited. Consumers were facing cooking problems due to the shortage of gas.
Industry and Commerce Association, in presence of District Police Officers, distributed few trucks full of cylinders to the dealers and were sold to the consumers. At Babar Mahal, three trucks full of STC, Nepal and Om Gas cylinders were directly distributed to the consumers without taking it to the dealers’ store.
Although still some consumers had to return home with an empty cylinder. A student of Buddha Marg complained that he was unable to get the gas even after two weeks of search in the local market and has been visiting hotel for meal.
