ISLAMABAD - Some circles in the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz government are mulling to make the popular fuel (CNG) expensive by fixing its price at 90% parity with the price of petrol, sources said on Wednesday. “If the government links the price of CNG at 90% parity with the petrol’s, then per kilogramme of compressed natural gas would go up by Rs63,” sources said. “Initially this proposal was discussed in the energy working group meeting and later the Petroleum Ministry gave its nod to link the price of the CNG with petrol price.”  At present, CNG is 51 percent cheaper than the price of petrol. However, if the government goes with the recommendations of energy working group and the Petroleum Ministry, only 10 percent difference of prices between both fuels would be left. The new CNG price will be Rs134/kg, sources said.They opine that the government has decided to end the use of CNG by jacking up its price as no other respite is in its hands. They said the PML-N government through its much-touted Energy Policy would get the approval of the Council of Common Interest (CCI) to fleece the masses using CNG.  All Pakistan CNG Association (APCNGA) Chairman Ghiyas Parcaha out rightly rejected the proposed gas parity plan and urged the PML-N government and the CCI not to approve it. He said: “Many countries are promoting CNG as it is environment friendly but surprisingly our government is going against this mechanism. Gas is our local product therefore government should provide it on cheaper price and listen to the voices of 3.7 million CNG consumers. “We were hopeful with PML-N government that it would provide relief to the masses by ensuring CNG supply and would end long queues as they promised during election campaigns. But it is shocking that this regime is also following the path of the previous government. The PML-N leadership should pay heed to energy conservation plan of the APCNGA to bridge the energy shortfall.” Earlier, the Supreme Court directed the previous government to remove the gas parity between CNG and petrol, declaring it unlawful and stated that since CNG was produced locally and has no connection to the international market, operating costs and present profit on the CNG prices was against the law.
