CNG stations have reopened across Sindh for 24 hours on Thursday, as per the reports of local media.
As per the Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC), a decision was taken to open the gas stations throughout the province for 24 hours during the current week.
According to the schedule, the stations would remain open until 8:00 in the morning of Friday.
It is important to mention that a 12 hours schedule was followed by the SSGC authorities during the past weeks in the province due to a shortage in gas supply owing to the ongoing winter season.
On the January 11, 2020, the All Pakistan Compressed Natural Gas Association (APCNGA) and All Karachi Transport Ittehad (AKIT) made the announcement to have a protest at the office of Sui Southern Gas Company in Karachi over the continuous closure of the CNG stations across the city.
Irshad Bukhari the AKTI President had said that that the Sindh produced gas meets the gas requirements of 70 per cent of the nation and the SSGC is inclined on destroying businesses in the province. He said that instead of producing gas, the SSGC has closed down the gas supply in the province.
He also said that if the present situation does not improve then the petroleum industry would be held responsible for the consequences.
THE APCNGA also said that the government was not meeting its promises and it has become a routine for them as after agreeing to open the stations a day earlier, they announced their closure hours before.
