CNG price hike: LHC issues notices to government, others

The Lahore High Court has issued notices to the government and others and called for a report following a petition against increase in the compressed national gas (CNG) prices announced by the petroleum minister. The court will also order the government to implement the original increase. Consumer Amjad Ali Qasim argued that the minister petroleum had announced an increase of Rs 13 per kilogramme but the ministry issued a notification saying the actual increase was Rs 4.38 instead of Rs 13.
