Islamabad: The All Pakistan CNG Association (APCNGA) on Wednesday demanded new gas load shedding schedule for CNG industry to mitigate problems of masses and industry.
CNG filling stations should be permitted to provide gas to masses for nine hours a day, for 18 hours on Wednesday, ban on electricity load shedding during working hours, and restoration of proper gas pressure, said Ghiyas Abdullah Paracha, Chairman Supreme Council APCNGA and Central Chairman APCNGA Pervaiz Khan Khattak while addressing a joint press conference.
These demands if accepted would dramatically change the situation to soothe masses which is also earnest desire of the government, said Ghiyas Paracha.
He said that removing bottlenecks in the energy projects, doubling budget of all such projects, early import of LNG, finding new reserves, and efficient use of natural gas would also help improve situation.
Paracha said that differences between gas companies and Ogra over UFG have resulted in reduced pressure that must be resolved.
The leader of the CNG sector said that former government was anti-CNG but all the allegations levelled against this sector were cleared from Supreme Court and other forums.
