    What were those two clowns sitting and giving media statement (minus face masks) about international quality standards etc?

    Image shows the cylinder has NOT exploded. Media spreading fake news.

    Cylinders do not explode. Gas leaked - due to damaged hose or connectors - explode. Do not spread wrong information you fools.

    Watch carefully the last photo. The fire place is located near edge of the room so the gas tank may be placed there as the cooker also set there. But severe damaged in the other corner of the room. Bit confuse..

    If you see the gas cylinder no slightest damage but the news published as gas cylinder explosion.

    Oh Damian, seems to be quite a few damaged hoses and connectors around these days, no?

    Going by above comments, seems there a futile attempt by some company reps to safeguard litro lol

    Thank the Rajapakse boys for initiating a new venture to swindle gas money, supply sub standard gas, make huge profits by increasing the price and looting the public at will, not mentioning putting your life at risk. I am sure they are getting specially air lifted gas cylinders for their cooking from china.

    This is a critical issue and should be addressed immediately. As said have these gas cylinders in the house is like a ticking bomb. Who will be responsible for the damages caused. These bulls are only talking. The government should take action ASAP to resolve the public from this danger.

    Most importantly, how are the affected going to be reimbursed for their damages ? Have they been insured for this type of disaster ?
