Thousands of residents living in sectors 21, 22 and 23 have been demanding supply of piped natural gas (PNG) to their houses.
A group of residents on Thursday met Huda administrator Praveen Kumar and sought his intervention in the matter. Apart from senior officials of Huda, members of the residents’ welfare associations and officials of the cooking gas supplier, Indraprasth Gas Limited (IGL), were also present in the meeting.
The residents said they were not satisfied with the Huda chief’s response during Thursday’s meeting. The administrator asked only a file to be prepared so that the issue can be looked into.
“We do not understand the delay in providing a simple permission when all modalities have been clearly explained to them (Huda). The work could have been easily done today as all officials concerned were present in the meeting,” said Omed Singh, president, Sector 21 RWA.
Residents said that the gas line can easily be laid because the fuel supply is already available up to the Kapashera border near Sector 21. “If it can be available in DLF areas, why can’t we get it?” Singh said.
PNG is the cheapest domestic fuel and consumers get bills once in two months.
