LAHORE: Fuel shortage in the provincial capital has declined considerably as more than eighty percent of filling stations have reopened to provide petrol to people.

The petrol pumps opened for fuel supply early morning on Wednesday 21,January,2015 and the long lines steadily decreased as the day progressed.

It may be mentioned that government reopened CNG stations to facilitate the people as an alternative source of fuel while petrol shortage was being overcome.

Meanwhile, District Coordination Officer (DCO) Capt (r) Muhammad Usman said that the district administration was monitoring the supply and sale of petrol at all pumps of the city through the control room set up at the DCO Office. The situation of petrol crisis and empty reservoirs of oil at filling stations had been normalising gradually, he said, adding that if any citizen faced the problem of overcharging at any petrol pump of the city, he could lodge a complaint on the control room number 042-99214191, which was operational round the clock.

He expressed these views while having a press briefing about the functionality of control room on Wednesday.

The DCO said that representatives of different oil companies were present in the control room round the clock and they had been coordinating at the Machikey Oil Depot for supply at all pumps of the city. Similarly, officials deployed at pumps were ensuring that the same supply would be sold completely.

He said that the district administration formed four squads to trace out the people associated with the business of black-marketeering. The squads patrolled in Shadbagh, Ferozepur Road, Baghbanpura, Gujjar Pura and their surrounding localities. He added that the CDGL had also identified 11 petrol pumps to provide regular supply of petrol to emergency vehicles on a priority basis
