Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) Mo Mujibur Rahuman revealed that the Consumer Affairs Authority (CAA) has gazetted standards for gas hoses and regulators but not for gas itself.
Accordingly, the SJB MP pointed out that the CAA must immediately act on issuing a gazette in this regard, during his visit to the Authority to remind them of their powers today (20). SJB MP Nalin Bandara also accompanied Rahuman.
The MP added that the CAA has the power to seek compensation for accidents caused by gas leaks. If the CAA does not use its power in this regard, the matter will be brought to the Supreme Court, the SJB MP warned.
