The All Pakistan CNG Association has announced that it will stage a sit-in against gas loadshedding in front of the Parliament House here on January 4.
Talking to ‘The News’ on Friday, All Pakistan CNG Association Chairman Ghayas Abdullah Paracha said that they have tried their level best, but the government failed to take proper steps to restore smooth supply of gas to the CNG stations.
He said: “Everyone knows that we have enough gas in our country, but because of wrong policies of our government we are facing loadshedding of gas.”
Paracha said that according to law and agreement, the government is bound to provide gas to domestic users and CNG sector. That’s why gas companies inked an agreement for provision of smooth supply of gas to domestic consumers and CNG sector throughout the year. Whereas the government is bound to supply gas to other industries only for nine months as they could continue their production with other sources of energy.
He said that the CNG sector was purchasing gas at a high rate of Rs503mmBTU, whereas other sectors, including fertilizer industry, are purchasing gas at the rate of Rs102mmBTU, power sector at Rs250mmBTU and industries on Rs382mmBTU.
Paracha said that despite the agreement with CNG sector, the government is supplying gas to industries and other sectors and ordered closure of CNG stations twice a week. Despite closure of CNG stations for two days, the government has failed to provide gas to domestic consumers, which is creating problems for the general public.
