ISLAMABAD - Nanbai association of Islamabad on Friday threatened to sell Roti for Rs 10 instead of Rs 5 if the government did not decrease gas tariffs. The association of nanbais, Islamabad General Nanbai Association (IGNA) claimed that government had increased gas tariffs by 125% during the last 6 months. The IGNA staged a protest demonstration in front of the National Press Club against the Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) for increasing security fee. Scores of nanbais carrying placards and banners inscribed with different slogans were chanting slogans. IGNA President Fazal Karim Abbasi told TheNation that the SNGPL had sent nanbais notices, asking them to deposit additional security fee. He said the nanbais had got 20 days compensation from SNGPL for not depositing securities. Fazal further said that nanbais couldn't accept the increased gas tariffs and additional securities' fees in view of growing inflation and the price hike in utility services. The participants of the protest demonstration unanimously said that either they would observe complete shutter-down strike or they would sell "roti" and "nan" at Rs 10. They said that currently, more than 500 tandoors operate in capital and the government should save this industry otherwise 500 families would be deprived of bread and butter. They elaborated that one of their colleagues, named Fiaz Ahmad, had died, as he was shocked after seeing the additional security bills. Participants of the protest demonstration demanded of the government to withdraw additional security fee, which is not affordable for nanbais and provide them Sui gas on domestic rates.
