The frequent problem of shortage of LPG cooking gas supply in the state is likely to be plugged in the near future if union Petroleum ministry agrees to the proposal for setting up another LPG bottling plant somewhere in the foothill near Tuli under Mokokchung district. According to highly placed source, the state government had taken up the problem of the short supply of LPG cooking gas and made the proposal for setting up another LPG bottling plant. The union ministry had taken serious note of the problem and the proposal and the state is hopeful especially with an IAS from Nagaland Cadre and former state chief secretary, R.S. Pandey at the helm of affairs in the union petroleum ministry in the capacity of secretary. Pandey is learnt to have taken the matter seriously and assured to take up the matter with the ministry. The state government had proposed for enhancing the capacity of the existing LPG bottling plant at Chumukedima but was told that there was no scope for upgrading the capacity of the existing plant. Even if it was upgraded, the financial implication would not be feasible and would be equivalent to setting up a fresh new plant. Based on this aspect, the state made the proposal for the new LPG bottling plant. Once the plant is established, it can take care of the supply of LPG gas to Mokokchung, Mon, Longleng, Zunheboto and even Kihphire and Tuensang districts, the official added. The proposal of the new LPG bottling plant at the foothill somewhere in Tuli was made in view of the proposal for construction of railway connectivity at the foothill.
