Lahore, November 02, 2016 (PPI-OT): LPG Association of Pakistan Chairman Farooq Iftikhar has said that the Punjab Government deserves appreciation for safeguarding human lives by cracking down on manufacturing of illegal and unsafe cylinders of LPG.
In a statement issued here, Mr. Farooq Iftikhar said that increased LPG cylinder accidents were alarming and called for further crack down on manufacturers of substandard quality cylinders and demanded more check and balance by both OGRA and the Provincial Government.
He said that manufacturers of fake and poor quality cylinders are playing with lives of masses. He said that these cylinders are mainly being manufactured in Gujranwala and Gujrat therefore strong action against these anti-social elements must be taken up on priority.
He said that these inferior cylinders were available at half the price of a standard OGRA approved cylinder and this was the main reason for their popularity. “Both OGRA and the Provincial Government need to advocate for the use of OGRA approved cylinders and take out advertisements to the same effect. An awareness campaign is required for which the LPG Industry is willing to participate with both OGRA and the Provincial Government” stated Mr. Iftikhar.
