Lahore- The supply to Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) stations in Lahore region was restored today, three months after the Lahore High Court (LHC) order.
The supply to CNG stations had been suspended in December 2013 due to gas load shedding. The LHC had ordered to ensure gas supply to the CNG stations for two days in a week.According to new gas load management plan issued by the Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited, the CNG stations will supply gas for 48 hours. However, despite the announcement, most of the CNG stations in the city remained closed due to technical faults or absence of staff. Long queues of vehicles were seen at the CNG stations early in the morning today, while the citizens lauded the government for restoring the supply of CNG. The citizens said that the routine life was disturbed due to petrol prices and their budget would balance now.
