Most of the Pakwheels’ members were of the same notion, to push CNG down the priority list and sustain your industrial sector rather deprive them off gas while we run cars on it.
In a recent ECC (Economic Coordination Committee) meeting presided over by Finance Minister Dr Abdul Hafeez Shaikh, demoted the CNG sector to the bottom of the priority list for the supply of gas which earlier was third on the priority list.
The power sector, industrial and fertiliser consumers and cement were upgraded one step up the list which means the CNG sector would get gas supply after fulfilling requirements of domestic, commercial, power plants, industrial, captive power, fertiliser and cement in that order.
It was decided that the first priority order will be given to domestic and commercial sectors. The power and general industries sectors will be second and third on the priority list respectively, followed by cement and CNG.
