In 2015 OGRA had increased gas prices by 67%. It was a serious blow to the Pakistani nation as it meant more people would be deprived of heating their homes during winter. This year OGRA has managed to up its prices again by 36% causing outrage among the public.

Moonis Elahi has clearly condemned this decision taken by OGRA which has obviously been done at PMLN behest. Sui gas, a natural resource available in abundance in Pakistan should be provided at a rate the public can afford.

Raising prices indiscriminately would not solve the issue of artificial shortage created by the present government of PMLN. Controlling corruption and making reforms in the sector would be a better approach to handle the usage and keep prices under control.
