Sindh government threatens to shut gas supply across Pakistan
ISLAMABAD - The Sindh government is outraged at the closure of gas supply to the province.
Sindh government has threated to shut the gas supply to the other provinces and start a movement to protest against the closure of gas supply to the CNG stations in the province.
In a joint press conference, the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Sindh Chapter, Nisar Ahmed Khuhro, castigated the move.
“People from all walks of life are suffering due to the suspension of gas supply. Domestic consumers, CNG stations, industries, as well as small factories are all affected by the federal government’s decision to stop gas supply in the province,” said Khuhro.
Barrister Murtaza Wahab, the advisor to Chief Minister on Information, Transport Minister Owais Shah, and Energy Minister Imtiaz Sheikh also accompanied Khuhro.
Khuhro further claimed that Sindh accounts for the production of 71 percent of Pakistan’s gas. “Pakistan’s Constitution guarantees to fulfill the energy demand of the area where the gas is produced and then supply it to other areas,” he said.
