He said the move will also help in controlling environment pollution.
Earlier speaking with KNN India, Secretary-General of Manesar Industries Welfare Association (MIWA) Manmohan Gaind had said that laying of PNG is a good step taken by the authority but wherever the infrastructure of PNG is unavailable, it is a major problem. There is no such problem in PNG laid industries and where the pipeline is unavailable it is a problem. Industries should get enough time to adopt it and otherwise it would affect the operation of industries.”
Jagga mentioned that laying of PNG has started now and soon industries will be shifted to PNG as per the CPCB directions.
