ISLAMABAD - While demanding establishment of a national price control committee to judge prices and profits of LPG sector, LPG Distributors Association Pakistan has warned of a countrywide strike from November 25 if the recent artificial hike in prices by gas are not withdrawn. Irfan Khokhar, Chairman LPG Distributors Association Pakistan, on Wednesday during a press conference here at the National Press Club has announced a countrywide strike call from November 25 against the artificial LPG price increase. He requested the Chief Justice of Pakistan to take suo moto notice of illegal burgle of Rs 300 billion from public by influential the gas mafia. He urged the OGRA to cancel the licences of those involved in this heinous crime of plunder which was in fact against OGRAs notification of September 8, 2010. He said that the gas mafia of LPG producers and marketing companies had violated the directions of OGRA regarding increase in LPG price. He said that the gas mafia remained active in looting and grabbing money and had also made all attempts to increase LPG in near future as winter is about to reach. He condemned the present hike of LPG up to Rs 12 per KG, which would further increase the cost of Rs 140 per domestic cylinder, and to commercial cylinder it would cost Rs 560 extra. Consequently, gas price in Gilgit, Muzaffarabad, Azad Jammu and Kashmir, FATA and PATA had been increased from Rs 130 to Rs 140 per KG so price of domestic cylinder was raised from Rs 1510 to Rs 1630. Furthermore, at Peshawar and Multan, it had been increased from Rs 100 to Rs 112 per KG and at Karachi; LPG price had been increased from Rs 80 to Rs 92. The Chairman LPG Distributors Association Pakistan further lamented that OGRA had decided Rs 986 for a domestic LPG cylinder and for a mix gas cylinder the price was decided at Rs 1031 per domestic cylinder while for imported gas cylinder, a maximum price was decided at Rs 1082 but contrary to this, domestic cylinder was available at Rs 1602 in markets of the country.
