More than 80 per cent of canteens and hotels will be closed from tomorrow due to the shortage of domestic Liquid Petroleum (LP) gas, Chief of the All Island Canteen Owners' Association (AICOA), Asela Sampath said.

He told the Daily Mirror that the gas shortage in the market had become the main issue, in addition to the increase in vegetable prices.

"The canteen owners are facing a critical situation where they are unable to continue with their services," he said.

Due to the shortage of gas and the price increase of vegetables, the price of vegetable lunch packets has been increased to Rs.180, the Association said. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)

    Ha! haa!! trying to get some mileage? a.) vegetable prices? b.) price of rice and other commodities? c.) because of covid-19 less and less people gather in common places d.) people have very little money left after meeting household ends? want more? basically very little left for personal dispose.

    The only affordable ingredients in a pack are all imported ones such as dhal, patato, big onions etc. I did propose to a canteen owner to try a 'grass malluma' especially for the 6.9

    OMG!!! What a critical situation!!We are all in for a breakdown - the people without food or water to quench our thirst and the Restaurants, Canteens and the like without any income!! Sad! Heartbreaking!!

    If we get all the buffalos in parliament to line up and collect their gas it should keep us supplied with gas for a long time.

    People who had enough savings wanted the govt to go for lockdowns unfortunately its the poor who gonna face the consequences. Poverty gonna kill more innocent people than the covid and it will pave way for malnourished babies.

    Lanka Tilaka Saturday, 18 December 2021 02:40 AM

    People, please wait. Parliment canteens are open and feeding the 226. More gas being produced by the 226 to satisfy the country's needs.

    When you elect a totally inexperienced and arrogant guy to lead a team or group. Everything will start to fail. Here also it is same.

    Joe Saturday, 18 December 2021 11:18 AM

    Pathetic situation. A disgrace to the government. At every juncture, its a failure.

    Saudangema Sunday, 19 December 2021 07:41 AM
