RAWALPINDI All Pakistan Compressed Natural Gas Station Owners Association is all set to close CNG stations in Rawalpindi, Islamabad, Jhelum, Attock and Chakwal districts as a token protest on Tuesday (today) against the Federal Governments decision of two holidays a week for such filling stations. During the next phase of protest, CNG stations in Lahore and Sargodha districts would remain closed, whereas such a strike would be observed in Multan and Bahawalpur divisions during the third phase. President All Pakistan Compressed Natural Gas Station Owners Association, Ghayas Abdullah Paracha, while talking to media persons here on Monday said if the government didnt withdraw the decision of closing CNG stations two days a week due to shortage of gas in winter, the CNG industry would observe complete strike from November 15 for an indefinite period of time. Paracha said that transporters would suffer a lot due to the closure of CNG stations and demanded of the Government to withdraw its decision immediately. Our association always supported the Government regarding gas management in the past but this time, the Government took the verdict without taking us into confidence and this will ruin the CNG industry, Paracha said. He demanded of the government to revise the rates of CNG from 2010 and announce a policy in this regard. He also asked the government to make arrangements for uninterrupted gas supply to the CNG stations. He was of view that CNG sector consumed only six percent of the total consumption of gas in the country and by shutting down the stations, other industry could not be given due benefit. He warned the government to revise the decision as almost 2.5 million vehicles were using CNG as fuel.
