Office-bearers of the Compressed Natural Gas Association in Khyber Pakhtunknhwa on Tuesday said they would go to the court after Eid-ul-Fitr if the government did not announce a special gas tariff relief package for the CNG sector forthwith.

Addressing a news conference, President of the Sarhad Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Engineer Maqsood Anwar Pervaiz, along with Chairman of All Pakistan CNG Association Fazal Muqeem Khan and Chairman of Real CNG Association Hammad Khan, here at the chamber on Tuesday said the government was using delaying tactics in provision of relief to the coronavirus-hit CNG sector.

They said the CNG sector employed more than 0.5 million people.

They said government's apathy toward the CNG sector was deplorable. They warned that investment worth millions of rupees in the CNG sector would go to waste if the government did not change its policy toward this sector.

They said that disparity in prices of CNG and petrol after decrease in the oil prices globally as well as locally had put the survival of the CNG sector at stake. Maqsood Pervaiz urged the government to announce a special gas tariff relief package for the lockdown-hit CNG sector.
