KARACHI: (HRNW) The All Pakistan Compressed Natural Gas Association (APCNGA) on Monday announced that the gas stations across the Sindh province especially in Karachi would remain open on Tuesday, ARY NEWS reported.
According to the association, the CNG stations would remain open from 10:00 pm on Tuesday to 06:00 am on Wednesday for eight hours.
It further said that the further opening of the gas stations is linked with the proper provision of gas pressure from the Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC).
On Saturday, the APCNGA and All Karachi Transport Ittehad (AKTI) have announced to hold a protest at the office of Sui Southern Gas Company in Karachi over continuous closure of CNG stations in the city.
The AKTI President Irshad Bukhari said that Sindh-produced gas fulfils the gas needs of 70 percent of the country and the SSGC is bent on destroying businesses in the province. “Instead of producing gas, the SSGC has shut down gas supply in the province,” he said.
He said that the city’s 70 percent of the transport is shifted on CNG and continuous closure from the gas company is badly affecting their businesses.
