COLOMBO (News 1st); The Sri Lankan government says Gas can only be filled and distributed to the market in cylinders belonging to the relevant company.

State Minister of Co-operative Services, Marketing Development and Consumer Protection, Lasantha Alagiyawanna stressed that it is against the law to fill a cylinder belonging to one company with gas from another company.

However, the State Minister noted that measures are underway to provide immediate relief to affected consumers in the face of the suspension of gas imports by Laugfs Gas.

State Minister Alagiyawanna emphasized that there was no need to panic regarding a shortage of gas in the local market, adding that Litro Gas has adequate stock of gas to meet the local demand.

The government had previously stated that Litro Gas is ready to refuel the Laugfs cylinders.
