KARACHI - Supreme Council of the All Pakistan CNG Association (APCNGA) chairman Ghiyas Abdullah Paracha said that gas loadshedding for CNG filling stations in Sindh is unconstitutional. He was talking to mediamen, transporters, and representatives of consumer rights bodies here on Wednesday. The gas loadshedding in Sindh is deliberate violation of the decision of the Sindh High Court under Article 158 while gas loadshedding in other parts of the country is simply illogical and unacceptable, he said.“We are striving for provision of CNG for consumers. We don’t want CNG stations closed which proves that we have not announced strike.” He further said that protest against the damaging policies of the government was our democratic right which cannot be denied by anyone. Questioning the wisdom of Adviser to the PM on energy Dr Asim, he said that the dual national official had proved to be the stumbling block in resolution of the energy crisis in Pakistan. The adviser has pushed the country in a situation where economic growth is seriously threatened, millions have lost jobs while resolution of the energy crisis seems a far cry in his presence, he added. He said that gas loadshedding had not only resulted in additional distress among the masses but it had also triggered a race among liquid gas companies to extract maximum from people by daily revising prices which was going unchecked. Paracha said that CNG sector had no other option to keep the wheels of their businesses moving while other sectors enjoying patronage of the petroleum ministry were being encouraged to use gas despite the fact that they had other options available.Using other fuel than gas can push up their cost of business to some extent but it will not shutdown their business like we have experienced, he said.
