Karachi: The gas crisis is getting worse every passing day in Sindh and now it has entered into its fifth day, the transport companies has launched a strike that added woes to the citizens.
CNG supply by Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) has remained suspended while the Karachi Transport Ittehad (KTI) – a union of owners of private buses, minibuses, taxis and rickshaws in the port city have continued their strike on another day, halting city’s traffic regulation.
People are suffering due to the low gas pressure and non-availability of CNG has caused trouble to transport. Industrial units are also getting very low pressure which has completely stopped the manufacturing process.
Routine life is extremely disturbed due to the absence of this commodity, although government has taken serious notice of it but the gas pressure is still not restored.
Yesterday, Finance Minister Asad Umar assured Karachi’s made sure to Metropolis business community for restoration of gas supply within five-days to the industry in Karachi.
Prime Minister also warned that those responsible for the gas crisis will not be spared at any cost and the matter be dressed at the earliest.
The Prime Minister has also ordered the removal of the board of directors of Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) and Sui Southern Gas Company Limited (SSGC) because of the crisis and that too without any reasonable justification.
