They said that government announced reduction of Rs25/- per kg in the LPG rates on 27th October, 2014 but the local dealers are still selling it at Rs:143/- per kg which is unjust and open violation of government directives.
They demanded of the district administration and other concerned authorities to strictly enforce the government rules and establish writ of the government so that they get LPG at government fixed rates.
