Local authorities in China should not use a “one-size-fits-all approach” to implement a coal-to-gas switching campaign, the China Daily said in an editorial on Tuesday.

The measure has pushed up gas demand and left some households without heating this winter, the newspaper said.

“Any measures to run after a ‘blue sky’, including the ‘gas-replacing-coal’ campaign some local governments have launched, should fully consider residents’ needs and be tailored to local conditions,” said the editorial.
