I contacted Southern Gas that evening and they provided me with 15 cylinders before we even gave the quota. Despite all this sad incident, Chamarajnagar is not a far away place. We believe it is part of us, part of their pain.

Pained to learn about the incident in Chamarajanagar. My heart goes out to families who have lost their loved ones. Our Govt is investigating the incident.

Saving citizens lives is our top priority.

We are working on a war footing to ensure availability of oxygen in all dists.
