ISLAMABAD: CNG stations in Islamabad Capital Territory and Punjab reopened on Friday.
According to the spokesperson of the Petroleum Division, the supply of CNG for vehicles will have a positive impact and will enable the people to have affordable travel facilities.
The spokesperson said that the price of CNG has been reduced by five rupees while the Petroleum Division is also working on a long term plan to provide low-cost fuel to the public.
Gas supply resumed in Punjab’s CNG stations after two weeks. Long lines of cars were seen at CNG stations across the province.
Meanwhile, according to authorities, an LNG plane will arrive in Karachi on Friday, after which even power plants will be supplied LNG. Power outages are also expected to decrease due to this development. Gas supply in the province had been halted due to repairs at LNG terminals.
It is worth mentioning here that in Sindh, gas supply has not improved. During the Sindh Assembly session on Thursday, Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah said that they will be taking action against the federal government for not giving the province its share of gas. The ruling Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) are in agreement on this issue and the latter had submitted a motion in the assembly against the poor gas supply in the province. The motion was approved.
