All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) management will hold series of protests against gas supply suspension to textile mills by Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) starting Wednesday, 4th January, 2012. Thousands of textile workers will join hands with the mill management to protest against gas supply suspension to textile mills in Punjab at the Manga-Raiwind Road, said APTMA spokesman. He further added that top APTMA leadership is also likely to attend the protest against gas supply suspension for indefinite period by SNGPL. It may be noted that gas supply to textile industry has been suspended since December 25 and SNGPL management has informed that it is unlikely that gas supply would be restored in January. APTMA spokesman said it is impossible for the industry to continue with production plans due to severe energy crisis, providing job to about 10 million textile workers of Punjab.
