Kathmandu, February 20
Representatives of cooking gas dealers around the country have threatened to stop selling LPG is their demands, which includes a hike in sales commission, are not met.
Serving a ten-day ultimatum to the government, the association of gas dealers has said it would be forced to stop selling LPG if its demands are not met.
At a press conference in the capital on Wednesday, the association has demanded that the government form a commtitee to look into the various costs involved in the cooking gas production and distribution sector and hike the commission being provided to sellers.
The association has also demanded that the government take the initiative to talk to India about the use of Nepali gas bullets to ferry LPG from India. They say that gas bullets worth millions of rupees have been stranded in India as New Delhi has not given permission for them to ply.
The association says it will not buy LPG from bottlers from March 1 and shut all shops from March 14 if its demands are not met.
