Sale of Dangerous Petroleum
In various parts of the Lahore City,
shops have been opened for the sale of dangerous petroleum without obtaining
prior licence from the competent authority. They don’t have any safety measures
in case of fire explosion/outburst. These sales points are located in the
congested areas of Lahore.
They are causing public nuisance which is offence under certain laws of the
land. Violation of law mimics the administration and law enforcing agencies.
Their offensive silence on the matter is meaningful.
Great disaster may be caused. This business
must be either prevented or regularized. As far as my information on the
subject are concerned, storage and sale both are prohibited at law unless prior
licence is obtained and safety measures are ensured first. Our present
circumstances do not permit such type of business frequently in overcrowded
This evil must be killed before it grows
because prevention is better than cure. All the relevant agencies are requested
to take expeditious and severe action to eliminate this illegal business.
