    Too late, I think the govt bought the CNG association. Now innocent people will suffer, get arrested, wounded during protests

    Default CNG closure: association to hold protests from Monday

    ISLAMABAD: All Pakistan Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Association has announced to stage demonstrations to protest against the gas supply closure from Monday.

    Chairman APCNGA, Ghiyas Paracha said the transporters are also poised to hold their protest on Monday to give vent to their grievances over closure of CNG supply.

    Paracha said his association will stage its protest demonstration at Kutcheri Chowk, Rawalpindi.

    The government has stopped CNG supply to the CNG pumping stations in line with its earlier decision to suspend the gas supply to CNG retailers in the winter season to ensure its provision to the domestic consumers.

    Reportedly, CNG filling stations would not find gas during January and February while in March and April they would find gas supply for one day a week.

    CNG price may not go down by Rs 1.23/kg


    What a joke. Why don't they end it for good?

    Rawalpindi

    A large number of transporters, owners and workers of compressed natural gas (CNG) stations, and general public strongly protested against disconnection of gas supply here on Monday.

    The angry protesters carrying banners and placards gathered at Kutcherry Chowk and blocked the roads from all sides for hours against disconnection of gas supply to the CNG stations.

    On the other hand, transporters have given ultimatum of 48 hours to the government to open gas supply otherwise they would observe wheel-jam strike for an indefinite period in the twin cities.

    A large contingent of police and other law enforcement agencies reached the spot to control situation. Traffic wardens seemed helpless in controlling the traffic because angry protesters did not even allow ambulances to cross the roads.

    Speaking on the occasion Muttahida Transport Federation (MTF) President Malik Mehboob Awan said that the decision to shut down CNG stations was totally unjust. “We had a lot of hopes from the government to end crisis, therefore, we cast our votes in their favour, but present government seems completely helpless to address public grievances,” he added.

    He said that how could they ply their vehicles when there was no gas and this was the reason majority of transporters had kept their buses, wagons and Suzuki off the roads. “If government did not review its decision within 48 hours, we would start wheel-jam strike in twin cities,” he warned.

    Rawalpindi-Islamabad Suzuki Union President Raja Muhammad Riaz strongly protested against disconnection of gas supply. He said that government has literally failed to provide gas to homes, transporters and factories. “Where is the gas going,” he asked.

    All Pakistan CNG Association Supreme Council Chairman Ghayas Abdullah Piracha blamed the federal minister for Petroleum and Natural Resources for undermining CNG businesses to benefit petroleum dealers. He said that the conspiracy was hatched at the highest level to destroy the CNG industry by depriving the industry of the “only raw material” it had, and secondly also bringing CNG prices at par with petroleum products. “The CNG sector consumes just seven per cent of the gas produced in the country. Still it is frequently deprived of gas using the excuse of a countrywide shortage that is artificial,” he said.

    He also said that CNG was an inexpensive and environment-friendly fuel. He said the government leaders made claims of providing relief to the people, yet several steps had been taken recently to cripple the CNG sector, he added. “Government is neither providing gas to domestic consumers nor to CNG sectors then where is the gas going,” he said.

    The protesters alleged that an artificial shortage is being created to import LNG at higher price. This is a scam. It will unfold like the way, rental power plants scam did, they said.

    Default Transporters stage protest against CNG closure

    RAWALPINDI - The violent transporters refused to accept the incentives in term of increasing fares by City District Government Rawalpindi and demanded provision of CNG to public transport in the twin cities.
    They also leashed out at the Punjab government for jamming the wheels of local public transport and for providing CNG to metro bus in Lahore and to the buses plying from Gujar Khan to Raja Bazaar, Rawalpindi.

    The Muttahida Transport Federation (MTF) and Suzuki Owners and Drivers Welfare Association (SODWA) staged a massive protest demo at Karcheri Chowk against the government and SNGPL for suspension of gas to CNG pumps. The protestors, led by MTF Chairman Raja Muhammad Riaz and numbering in more than 600, blocked Katcheri Chowk by parking their 150 Suzukis and Toyota Hiaces for four hours. They were holding placards and banners and chanting slogans against Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif and Mian Shehbaz Sharif and SNGPL high-ups for suspension of gas to CNG pumps. They also staged a sit-in there.

    The mess of transporters in Katcheri Chowk triggered massive traffic gridlock across the city; posing hardships for commuters and pedestrians. The prominent among the protestors were SODWA President Raja Bashir and Secretary General Haji Zaman, Qalandar Khan, Cannt Suzuki Drivers and Owners Association President and Malik Shabir of Wagon Union.

    Raja Riaz condemned the government for suspension of gas to CNG sector owing to which the transporters facing troubles. He said that this draconian decision of PML-N government has unemployed more than 250,000 transporters of the twin cities. He said that the government was filling their pockets by providing CNG to its own bus service in Lahore and Rawalpindi but sucking the blood of poor families of transporters by closing CNG. He demanded earlier opening of CNG to pumps so that the transporters could earn bread and butter for their families.

    The commissioner Rawalpindi and district coordination officer (DCO) sent Secretary Regional Transport Authority to hold talks with transporters and convene them to end sit-in.
    The secretary RTA negotiated with transporters? representatives and told them that the government was ready to increase the fares of public transport as per petrol prices. However, the transporters refused to accept this proposal and demanded earlier provision of CNG to public transport.
    On the other hand, crowds of commuters looking for a Suzuki or Hiace were seen at many bus stops and jostling each other to board on available transport. The taxi and rickshaw owners looted passengers by charging double fares from them to bring them on their destinations.

    No, never, but I know Hiace people and other pub transport owners living in Bari Imam area going to Haripur daily via GT Road for fill ups. Hiace consumes 30 bars from Haripur to Islamabad.

    Another guy in my office who commutes between Islamabad and Sialkot regularly also says that his usual bus wala daily goes to Haripur fills and reaches Sialkot.

    CNG should be allowed for public transport after strict checks of kit/cylinder quality. And home users must be given priority over private CNG vehicles.

    This is what they claim and proper Hattar (Haripur district) is just 60 kms from Islamabad the CNG pump could be more nearer than that

    Even with 60Km, it's not possible.

    When we have a full cylinder, the guage shows 200 bars. And on long route, it does around 200~220Km, meaning around 1 bar per Km. So even for 60Km, min consumed gas should be 60 bars. But those hi-ace guys can claim anything

    May be it's due to multiple cylinders in hiaces

    Bar is a unit of pressure. And pressure is inversely proportional to volume of container.
    A small cylinder can have 200 bar pressure even with 1 kg gas, whereas a large cylinder even having 15 Kg of gas can have pressure lesser than 200 bar. These public transport vans can fill-in more than 25 Kg of CNG.
