After the shutdown of CNG stations in the province, the provincial government condemned the decision and urged the Federal Government to solve the matter at its earliest. Sindh produced 70% of the gas output, nationally. Not only the Sindh Government is protesting this recent move by SSGC, but the transporters have also warned to go on strike if the matter is not resolved timely.
Sindh CNG Association patron, Dr Zulfiqar Ahmed Yousfani, at a press conference, said that this suspension is a clear violation of Article 158-B of the Constitution. He also said that the Federal Government is not giving relief to the people of the country, which it promised before the elections.
