Islamabad: Chairman Supreme Council of the All Pakistan CNG Association APCNGA Ghiyas Abdullah Paracha on Wednesday said that gas load shedding for CNG filling stations in Sindh province is unconstitutional.
The gas load shedding in Sindh is deliberate violation of the decision of the Sindh High Court under Article 158, while gas load shedding in other parts of the country is simply illogical and unacceptable, he said.
Ghiyas Abdullah Paracha said that we have striving for provision of CNG for consumers, we don’t want CNG outlets closed, which proves that we have not announced strike.
Whole talking to media he said that APCNGA is striving for reopening of CNG filling stations and not for the closure therefore any call for strike is out of question. The leader of the CNG sector further said that protest against the damaging policies of the government is our democratic right which cannot be denied by anyone.
Questioning the wisdom of Adviser to the PM on energy Dr. Asim, he said that the dual national official has proved to be the stumbling block in resolution of the energy crisis in Pakistan.
Lashing out at the lobbies promoting LPG Liquefied Petroleum Gas and LNG Liquefied Natural Gas in Pakistan, he said that they have no right to damage CNG sector or hut our cause to fulfil their objectives.
He said that gas load shedding has not only resulted in additional distress among masses but it has also triggered a race among liquid gas companies to extract maximum from people by daily revising prices which is going unchecked. Meanwhile, CNG operators, unemployed staff, transporters and masses carried out protests in Gujranwala, Multan and Faisalabad today while a demonstration will be carried out on Thursday at Motorway in Lahore.
