Increase in the circulation of firewood in the Thirukovil area

T
 he demand for firewood has been on the rise for the past few months due to gas shortages across the island. In this situation, it is possible to see an increase in the number of firewood traders in the Thirukovil Divisional Secretariat area under the Ampara District Secretariat.

The demand for firewood is higher among the people this year than last year and a trader who does not fit into a place where more firewood is sold told us. Also, some local restaurants have been closed due to lack of gas in the Thirukovil area.
