Like in other parts of the North and Middle Andaman region, erratic supply of refills of the essential cooking gas continues to inconvenience consumers in different villages of Diglipur. According to report, majority of the hamlets in and around Diglipur like RK Pur, Madhupur, Subhashgram, Gudda Basti etc have not received LPG refills for the past two months forcing homemakers to turn to firewood to keep their kitchen fires burning.
According to reports, consumers in the region have been deprived of LPG refills for the past two months. Though, the principal agency, Consumer Cooperative Society Limited assured consumers in the region to supply the refills within 30 days, but it has failed to keep its commitment in ensuring timely supply of the essential commodity to consumers in the region. “Consumers in remote villages here are bearing the brunt of inconsistent supply for the past two months. LPG cylinders in many households here have exhausted and the agency has failed to arrange the refills for consumers for the past two months. The CCS should take immediate steps to ensure regular distribution of LPG refills here,” said some irate villagers of Subhashgram.
