    Indo-Pak gas pipeline: Pak asks India to reconsider price - The Hindu

    =============================

    So, we are asking for payments! I thought the gas was a gift from Indian govt. to Nawaz Sharif for his want and desire for peace with India.

    Well why ask for surety? Can't they be given benefit of doubt?

    Any war like situation with us they are going to turn off gas supply to us. If the gas pipe line is made from our fund that then ought to give soverign guarantee for regular supply.
    What pakis are hoping is that we finance the gas pipeline and when we take action against terrorists in Pak then they turn off the tap. Thus they get free pipeline for themselves at our expense.

    Saya Sir,
    Kindly read the article again.
    We would be supplying gas to Pakistan and not the other way around.
    We would import LNG trough Gujarat and deliver then at Wagah border through our existing pipeline from Gujarat to Jalandhar.

    Only 100km stretch from Jalandhar to Wagah needs to be built.

    India is going to import up to 20 million tons a year of liquefied natural gas and here we are exporting gas to other countries.:confused: I think the priorities of the Indian Government have been misplaced.

    aree bhaisahab ..India will be re-export the LNG to Pakis because they don't have a LNG import facility. We earn money they lose money. It's simple onlee.

    More than the money involved, I would love to see 12+ hrs power-cut all across Pakistan and to witness their failed manufacturing sector.
    Do you realize that India and Pakistan has 70% overlapping in our exports, so no gas for them is a competitor less for us.
