Theshara Jayasinghe has stepped down from his position as the chairman of Litro Gas Lanka Limited, the primary liquefied petroleum gas supplier in Sri Lanka.

Conveying the decision to President Gotabaya Rajapaksa in his letter of resignation, Jayasinghe said he resigned with effect from 14 April (Thursday).

Jayasinghe says, since the day of his appointment on July 06, 2021, he had not received enough support from then-Finance Minister Basil Rajapaksa.

He explained that he cannot solve the ongoing LP gas crisis by himself, noting that it needs the contribution of all economic experts in the country.

Jayasinghe added that steps have been taken to import LP gas from India under credit, in order to maintain the supplies in the market for a period of time. He went on to urge the President to intervene and ensure that it happens accordingly.
