Protest against prolonged gas outages, low pressure

The residents of Sector G-7/2 staged a protest against the prolonged gas outages which had increased the woes of the citizens. Residents of Sector G-7/2, including women and children, staged a protest under the lead of Jamaat-e-Islami Punjab Naib Amir and former MNA Mian Muhammad Aslam and marched towards Dastoor Highway due to which the road was blocked for all kind of traffic for three hours.
The protesters complained that although most of the people were not using gas heaters in their houses and majority of CNG stations were closed there was still no gas to light stoves.
A housewife, Khalida Sajid, said, “We are being forced to use firewood to prepare food”.
The protesters demanded the authorities concerned to take immediate steps for the provision of gas. Domestic consumers from Koral Chowk to the airport are braving the low gas pressure.
“The gas pressure was recorded almost zero early in the morning and evening due to which we have to go to hotels and tandoors to get cooked food and bread which is quite expensive and it is difficult for the poor to buy,” said Shehnaz Saleem.
When contacted, Sui Northern Gas Company said few areas of the twin cities were facing low gas pressure and the company was trying its best to overcome this problem.
