ONGC operation to stop!

Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Thursday threatened to stop ONGC operations alleging injustice to the state. An angry chief minister told reporters in New Delhi that he was extremely unhappy with the oil and gas giant.

He alleged that Gujarat gets market price for the crude oil produced there from ONGC while Assam has not been receiving the same treatment. “We cannot tolerate these. We will consider stern steps against ONGC,” said the chief minister. “I have already conveyed my grievances to the Prime Minister also. Why this difference between two oil rich states. Gujarat will get market price and how will I remain a mute spectator,” the chief minister said.

Gogoi publicly criticized ONGC a day after he submitted a memorandum to Prime Minister Narendra Modi alleging that a special category state like Assam cannot afford such a huge loss of revenue and oil producing states like Assam or Gujarat should not be denied the benefit of their natural resources and made to compensate for the under recoveries of the Central Oil Marketing Companies.
