Staff ReportKARACHI: Majority of commuters and motorists suffered on Wednesday as CNG dealers went on strike across the country against possible tax surcharge on the fuel gas from July, SAMAA reports.Responding to a countrywide strike call given by All Pakistan CNG Association, CNG filling stations remained closed in Karachi and other major cities, bearing long queues of vehicle on late Tuesday night.However, the filling stations remained opened in Sindh interior and Balochistan where CNG dealers refused to be a part of the strike.According to Chairman Sindh CNG Association Dr. Zulfiqar Yousfanai, the decision was in a general body meeting, on the grounds that the a weekly closure and growing inflation has already affected the CNG business of more than 300 association members.The strike affected life in Karachi and other cities, making it difficult for citizens to make it to offices and schools.A large number of people, especially office-goers, factory workers and students, were seen waiting at bus stops in the metropolis for buses, mini-buses, and on boarding overloaded public transport vehicles.Commuters, mostly women at various bus stops, said this strike call created problems for them.The CNG dealers have called upon the government to refrain from imposing any possible surcharge tax over the fuel from July which may eventually result in hike in transport fares.
