The CNG strike may trigger on the worst fuel shortage in the country as the Oil Tankers Association has decided to join the CNG strike and to suspend the fuel supply from today. Thousands of vehicles having CNG kits had to switch over to alternate fuel (petrol) after the strike call given by the All Pakistan CNG Association

CNG suspension affected the supply chain in the country and long queues were seen outside the filling stations for petrol, however petrol pumps were not capable to provide fuel to a large number of vehicles. People are facing severe problems as they cannot continue their business and this situation would further become critical after the decision of All Pakistan Oil Tankers association (APOTA) to suspend the fuel supply in the country.

Chairman of the All Pakistan Oil Tanker Association, Punjab Nadeem Abbas, informed that Oil Tankers Association has decided to join the strike of the CNG association and to stop the fuel supply to all institutions from Monday. He said his association strongly supports the strike of the CNG association which is purely for the sake of the people of the country. He announced that from Monday fuel supply to all the national entities including Airports and other departments would be suspended for an indefinite period.

Nadeem Abbas added that new taxes on CNG sector are unjust and irrational and government should revoke this decision in favor of the people of the country.
