SARAWAK DAP chairman Chong Chieng Jen has accused the state government of abusing its power and “ripping Sarawakians off to feed its government-linked company” over the sale and distribution of 14kg liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) cylinders in the state.

The state government, which holds power on gas distribution, including the renewal of distribution licence, has refused to renew the distribution licence of the only other LPG distributor, MyGaz, which expires at the end of next month. This paves the way for Petros Niaga, the marketing arm of state-owned petroleum company Petros, to monopolise the market.
