Gas Cylinders being sold at the rate of Rs. 1400 in black market in the capital
CHIEF MINISTER SHEILA DIKSHIT SHOULD RESIGN FOR HER FAILURE TO STOP BLACK MARKETING IN COOKING GAS – VIJENDER GUPTA
New Delhi, 10th Nov. Reacting to the failure of Delhi Government to stop black marketing in cooking gas, BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta has said that the incompetent Chief Minister should resign immediately because this Government has failed in Governance.
After the decision of Government to fix quota of six cylinders per year, open black marketing of gas cylinders has started here. Delhi Government has expressed its inability to stop this black marketing. Chief Minister is going to complain to the Petroleum Minister Virappa Moiley against black marketing of gas cylinders. The bureaucracy has already complained about it to the Central Government.
BJP Pradesh President told that there is a Food and Supplies Department under Delhi Government and Minister is In-charge of this department. Yet Gas Cylinders are being sold from Rs. 1300 to 1500 in black market in the capital. Role of many Gas Agencies of Delhi in this case is also suspect. People say that the Gas Agencies have displayed a board stating, ‘stock not available’ at present. But their employees are offering gas cylinders to the needy persons in black market.
It is the season of festivals and gas is being consumed more in all the houses. Sweets and Namkeen makers are also using gas in large quantity. Government should appreciate this fact and should issue orders to supply Gas Cylinders on demand during the festival season. But Delhi Government is not aware of these facts. Its Food & Supply Department has not made any arrangement for the sale of adulterated sweets and black marketing on the occasion of Deepawali. No raids are been carried out by this department.
