Fact Check

The fire took place in the Rohini area on Thursday but not at a CNG pump station but at a banquet hall. After this, around 12 fire engines were immediately rushed to the spot, and then they managed to bring the blaze under control. According to reports, the fire started around 2 pm and because of the strong winds, the fire started spreading even more and it spread on pandal that was made of wood and clothes.

The fire department got the information about the incident at 1.48 pm after which 12 fire tenders were sent to the spot immediately.

Fire officers said the fire was not at the CNG pump which was near the tent house that caught fire.

But this can happen:

With CNG becoming a cheaper fuel for many with petrol and diesel prices touching the sky, many motorists have switched to CNG to make up for the price difference.

This has led to a profusion of sellers of CNG kits some cheaper because they use substandard parts. As a result, many cars have caught fire because of faulty fixing. Company-fitted cars have not reported such blasts.

It is indeed a cause for worry if a badly-fitted CNG kit can explode while filling gas at a filling station. Rohini has over 10 CNG pumps which explains the popularity of the fuel among the middle classes.

CNG sale in Delhi

The Delhi Petrol Dealers Association (DPDA) has announced that there will be no CNG sale in Delhi on August 10 from 6 am to 10 pm. The reason for the closure of CNG pumps is the non-reimbursement of the electricity bills by Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL).

Delhi Association called for the protest as the reimbursement of the electricity bill of CNG pumps is not being done by IGL and is long overdue which has been causing them huge losses every day. The protest will affect about 250 CNG pumps in the capital.

In a letter last month, DPDA President Anurag Jain wrote, We have decided to go for no CNG sale on August 10 from 6 am to 10 pm as a mark of protest. He further said the DPDA is forced to take this step due to the reluctance shown by IGL to pay the actual electricity reimbursement of CNG facilities to the dealers of Delhi who are incurring huge financial losses every month.

In Delhi, the electricity bill of the petrol pumps is paid by IGL, and CNG consumes a lot of electricity. DPDA says that IGL has not been paying the electricity bill for a long time, due to which they are suffering huge losses. And this is the reason the association has announced it will close CNG pumps today.

DPDA said there was a meeting organized with IGL in March 2022 to solve the issue, and IGL even agreed on the reimbursement of the electricity bill. After this meeting, the dealers were assured that the issue would be resolved in a month. DPDA said the issue has not been resolved yet and IGL didn’t fulfill its promise.

The non-fulfillment of DPDA’s demands has led them to take the step of closure of CNG pumps in Delhi on August 10. CNG is currently being sold at Rs 75.61 per kg in Delhi.

Congress workers and leaders staged a massive protest today in the capital. The protest is led by Priyanka Gandhi Vadra against rising prices, unemployment, and the GST hike on essential items. However, the protest got intense after Priyanka jumped over a barricade. The Congress General Secretary sat in the middle of the road in protest when she was stopped by the women police personnel.

Congress Leader Rahul Gandhi alleged that some MPs were beaten by the police at the protest. He said, All Congress MPs were marching towards Rashtrapati Bhawan to raise the issue of inflation and price rise but they (police) are not allowing us to go ahead from here. Our job is to raise the issues of the people…Some MPs were detained, and some were also beaten, he added.

Congress is holding a protest in Delhi despite the police had denied permission for it. The Paramilitary forces and the Delhi police have blocked the Vijay Chowk road and the route from Parliament to President’s House by barricades. Congress leaders are also planning to gherao PM’s house. Women personnel have been deployed on the other side of the barricades to stop the leaders from protesting.
