According to the new schedule for CNG load shedding CNG stations in Sindh will remain close on every alternate day. This was announced by Sui Southern Gas Company Limited (SSGC). CNG Dealers Association chairman Abdul Sami Khan has said this new schedule is unacceptable for the people in Sindh. Sami Khan said that a plan has been made to transfer Sindh’s CNG gas to Punjab.
Some CNG dealers are stating that PML-N government will first give CNG to Punjab than to other provinces. Insiders in PML-N has said that there is still no such plan of giving gas to Punab first than to other province.
Transporters in Karachi have also rejected this decision and said that 95% public transports are on CNG and this new schedule will baldy hurt the passengers. A daily passenger of Public transport said that it is true that these public buses are on CNG but these buses charges high fares as their buses are on Diesel.
The new decision will create hurdle in Sindh specially in Karachi where thousands of private car are on CNG and now they will have to wait in long queues to fill CNG in their vehicles.
