Acute gas shortage hits twin cities

Acute gas shortage hits twin cities

Islamabad: The shortage of gas in several parts of Rawalpindi and Islamabad despite claims by the concerned authorities for improvement in supply irked the people during the winter season.

The residents of Rawalpindi and Islamabad were facing shortage of gas which speaks volume about the inefficiency of the Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) in providing a basic facility without any interruption.

The problem of gas shortage persists in localities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi including Sadiqabad, Muslim Town, Haji Chowk, Dhoke Paracha, Arya Moahalla and Tarlai. However, despite hue and cry the SNGPL authorities were not taking practical steps to mitigate the problems to provide relief to the people.

The citizens said they were facing problems at their homes in preparing breakfast lunch and dinner as the pressure of gas went to zero and the stoves did not work. A resident of Muslim Town Amir Riaz demanded restoration of gas supply as early as possible.

Another resident of Tarlai Akhtar Khan said we need to heat our homes and cook food so gas should be supplied according to our needs. A restaurant owner in Sadiqabaad, Hussain Shah, said restaurants were also forced to use wood or gas cylinders for making food as there was no gas pressure.
