Similarly, the residents found no way out but to use Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) to cook meals while some are compelled to use firewood as fuel for cooking, putting extra burden on encumbered people.

On the other hand, the current situation has become a windfall for tandoor owners to make a quick buck by overcharging the residents on one pretext or the other.
