Speaking to Imphal Free Press over the phone, Panmei revealed that Jiribam LPG requirement is supplied by Silchar gas plant before.
He clarified that if there is no blockade on the national highways, LPG supply to Manipur can be supported from other nearby bottling plants.
Even during blockade, if LPG supply for Senapati is supported by other bottling plants, the same can be made available for valley districts which will be additional to what they are getting now in the present situation and it is basically a win-win situation for both, explained Panmei adding that it is desired that LPG shortages in Manipur is resolved.
