CNG owners serve legal notice to Petrobangla chairmanNew Age Online
Bangladesh CNG Filling Station and Conversion Workshop Owners Association on Sunday served a legal notice to Petrobangla chairman Hossain Monsur saying that he was speaking against the owners based on false allegation.
Rafique-ul Huq, a senior advocate of the Supreme Court, served the notice on behalf of CNG owners association.
According to a copy of the legal notice, Rafiq said, ‘It has come to the knowledge of our client that you have recently been very vocal about some false and baseless allegations against CNG station owners. Particularly in a live talk show, namely ‘Masranga Shamprotik’ hosted on the channel Masranga TV on July 23, 2013 at 12:00am, you said that CNG owners, by cheating consumers, are swindling Tk 10 to Tk 12 lakh every month without specifically mentioning how, when and who has actually committed such crimes.’
The legal notice requested Monsur to restrain from making ‘baseless’ and ‘oppressive’ statements against the CNG filling station owners and also asked the chairman to take punitive measures against any CNG filling station owner found cheating consumers.
When asked, Monsur defended his stand and told New Age that he would disclose facts about specific incidents of malpractice carried out by different CNG filling station owners in a press conference after Eid-ul-Fitr.
