State Minister of Consumer Protection Lasantha Alagiyawanna says that he will intervene to supply gas to the market after next Monday (27).
“Do not worry about running out of gas in the next three or four months. After Monday, we will continue to work with the relevant government agencies to ensure that gas cylinders continue to be supplied to the market.”
Question: As the Minister in charge of the subject, you came only today to look into this issue. Did the President blame you?
“No. I was not blamed or told to do anything. We must humbly admit that such a situation in history has not happened to the people due to the shortage of gas. ”
