Addressing a press conference at Karachi Press Club here, KTI President Syed Irshad Bukhari and APCA Chairman Shabbir Salman announced not to capitulate to the new schedule of CNG closure, saying the CNG associations rejected it absolutely.

They said the CNG stations will remain closed and transport will stay off roads in protest against the governmentโ€™s decision to cut off gas supply on Thursdays and Fridays, adding the strike will continue until the previous schedule is restored.

Irshad Hussain Bukhari noted that the associations are well abreast of peopleโ€™s troubles; however, he stressed that the gas closure shoved the transporters to the brink of ruination; hence, the situation necessitated this protest.

Meantime, two associations announced to disown the strike. CNG Dealers Associations Chairman Sami Khan demanded that the schedule of four-day suspension of gas in a week, should be changed.

Chairman CNG Owners Association Malik Khuda Bux asserted he did not want any anguish for people and any loss to their businesses.

Meantime, the spokesman of Sui Southern Gas Company Limited said the CNG supply will be ratcheted up as the severity of cold tapers off.
