In today’s episode of Tribune Take, we take a look at the gas shortage which has hit the public transport and industries in Sindh and Punjab.

Khurram Baig, Business Editor of The Express Tribune, says that the government should increase the rate of gas it sells to the industries and make sure that a steady supply reaches those who require gas for production but not for power generation.

On the transportation front, he says that the government should have laid down a policy where certain vehicles would be allowed to have CNG kits intalled.

Regarding the transport strike in Karachi, Baig says that the government will have to give in here because of public demand and the availability of gas.

@ stranger for your kind information, CNG uses 11% of the total output. In my view, the price of CNG should be equal to that of Diesel and let the consumers decide what they want. The government's effort in this regard is 'too little too late' mainly because it is likely to hurt their popularity even more.

@Asif Hussain Nizamani, what would happen if the things which are produced in Punjab are dedicated to Punjab ?
