Earlier on November 12, LPG Operators' Association of Bangladesh suspended bulk LPG supply to the bottling plants

Chittagong Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCI) urged the government to resume the bulk LPG supply to mitigate the artificial crisis of LPG, ensure consumers' rights and create equal opportunities for the businesspeople.

The CCCI President Mahbubul Alam made the request on Wednesday in separate letters to Prime Minister's Adviser to Energy and Mineral Resources Dr Toufique E Elahi Chowdhury, State Minister for Power and Energy Nasrul Hamid and Prime Minister's Principal Secretary Nojibur Rahman.

Earlier on November 12, LPG Operators' Association of Bangladesh suspended bulk LPG supply to the bottling plants. 

The decision to suspend bulk LPG supply has already taken its toll on the domestic market and people have been hit hard by the artificial crisis. The unilateral decision has created an artificial crisis and paved the way for a handful business people for a monopoly business, the letter mentioned.  

Against this backdrop, steps should be taken to stop such unethical act and create an equal business opportunity through resuming bulk LPG supply, the letter said.
