Halt to natural gas supply to textile sector demanded



STAFF REPORT ISB: The Pakistan Economy Watch (PEW) has demanded discontinuation of supply of natural gas to the textile sector throughout winter in order to ensure smooth supply of the commodity to the general masses.

The gas loadshedding which started with the advent of winter has now got worsened making the life of common man difficult, it said.

“Gas is not available in many cities and villages of the country where people leave for work without breakfast while parents find it difficult to feed their children,” said President PEW Dr. Murtaza Mughal.

He said that the government and others always blamed the CNG sector for gas shortage but now that sector has been closed since months they have no one to blame.

Mughal said that after disconnection of CNG sector, the government has started providing gas to textile sector negating its own claim of preferring common consumers over all other sectors.

The LPG sector continues to rob masses by increasing prices to a level that is unfrequented in the history of Pakistan while Ogra is playing role of silent spectator.
