Ensure sufficient supply
before price hike of gas
It becomes a common phenomenon; most of the city people don't get adequate gas through the household pipelines. Most of the day, the pressure remains low. Apart from it, interruption of gas supply to households, factories and other establishments is also too common while development and maintenance works are going simultaneously across the city.  
In this situation, who can afford, buy gas cylinders, kerosene stoves, electric rice-cookers and induction cooktops. But the rest have either to wait for hours for the gas supply to reach a workable level or to use earthen stoves. In particular, the housewives have to face tremendous problem in the kitchen almost every day.
I can't understand, why the government is going to increase gas price of household connection when gas supply in the line not sufficient? The authorities must ensure 24-hour adequate gas supply before price hiking.
