According to the circular issued by Sui Northern gas, all the CNG stations in Lahore, Gujranwala, Sahiwal and Multan are closed since 6am in the morning.
Masses were expecting decrease in CNG loadshedding from 1st July but government did not come up to their expectations. CNG closure for three days a week is unjust for the masses as this would have serious repercussions on the daily business activities.
The decision of Federal government to close CNG supply to the CNG stations of Islamabad, Murree, Faisalabad, Bahawalpur, Lahore, Gujranwala, Sahiwal and Multan on Thursday, Friday and Saturday has been implemented for the first time.
