ANP warns govt against shifting of gas plants

DROSH: At a public gathering held in Drosh bazaar, local leaders of Awami National party (ANP) warned the PTI government not to shift liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) plants from Chitral to Gilgit-Baltistan. 

They said the plants were sanctioned for Chitral town, Drosh, Broz and other areas by the previous government and their shifting would not be tolerated. 

The installation of LNG plants in Chitral was approved by the previous PML-N government after hectic efforts made by former MNA Shahzada Iftikharuddin. 

The plants were also to be installed in other areas of Chitral such as Garam Chashma, Booni and Mastuj.

However, the Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) of the cabinet on Dec 24, 2020, decided to shelve the LNG air mix projects in Chitral. 

Now it has been learnt that the government is planning to shift the plants sanctioned for Chitral to Gilgit-Baltsitan.

  1. The Gas plant idea for Chitral was a vision to divert the attention of the public. Gas transported in trucks to Chitral from far off gas fields and in some cases imported was just a hoax. we need cheap energy from our own rivers and investment is to be made on generation of hydel energy in every valley instead of gas.

    1. Agree with Prof Rahmat Karim Baig. It is a simple matter of common sense. Feeding Chitral with gas is as ridiculous as the Prime Minister standing in a delivery van dishing out Biryani boxes to selected few people and claiming “madina ki riasat mey koi bhooka nahi soyega”. We are going overboard in idiocy with every passing day.

  2. Agree. Technically, a plant is something that produces or generates some commodity like energy etc This is just a storage tank being talked about.

  3. There is nothing like a gas plant. Gas can best be brought in a truck container and stored in a tank in Chitral which they are calling a plant. It is not feasible and there is no example of it. People should demand something practical and feasible instead of wasting time and energies on impracticable dreams.

  4. بہت اچھا اقدام ہے عمران خان کے خلاف جمہوری قوتوں کو آگے آنا چاہیے چترال کے لیے منظور شدہ گیس پلانٹ کی منسوخی عمران خان کی ضد, ہٹ دھرمی اور جہالت کا نتیجہ ہےاس فیصلے کو ہم قبول نہیں کرین گے
