Energy policies behind current CNG crisis: PEW


Pakistan Economy Watch (PEW) on Thursday said energy policies had resulted in sluggish growth and the current CNG crisis. Situation would improve if a major reshuffle in energy related department was undertaken as the Supreme Court had proved incompetence of petroleum ministry and Ogra by rejecting their reports, said, PEW President Dr Murtaza Mughal. He said that some elements had planned to reap benefits while keeping whole nation focused on the on-going crisis. Dr Murtaza Mughal opined that Competition Commission’s raid on the office of CNG association seems politically motivated. He asked the Petroleum advisor to take immediate action against the CNG filling stations involved in gas theft. Dr Murtaza Mughal said that masses must know why an action had been delayed against CNG operators stealing gas and how many of such CNG outlets are owned by ministers, senators and politicians related to ruling coalition.
