DHADING: District Monitoring Committee has started its works by inspecting six different gas industries in Dhading district at the time when the shortage of LP gas (cooking gas) has paralysed the public life across the country.
During the monitoring, owners of gas industries said that there was excessive demand for LP gas in the market but they were unable to fulfil the market demand.
According to Coordinator of the Committee, Assistant-Chief District Officer Krishna Gaire, there was no reserve of gas in the industries as they have been sending gas cylinders in the markets.
Though there are 12 gas companies in the district, only 10 gas companies have been producing the gas.
Meanwhile, monitoring of drug procurement process by the District Health Office and policy on heath workers' arrangement has been started in Nuwakot.
