ISLAMABAD: 

Gas loadshedding and low pressure in the freezing cold weather is causing severe problems for the residents of various sectors of federal capital, particularly the G sectors.

Rabia Aslam, a resident of G-10/1, said the gas pressure was low in her area forcing the people to use alternate fuels, including LPG gas for preparing food.

“We are getting extremely low gas pressure during day time for the last two months and the situation is aggravating day by day,” said Ali Murtaza, a resident of G-11/2.

He said that most of the people were unable to use gas heaters in his locality. Majority of CNG stations in the city are closed, but the people are still not getting gas at their houses, he added.

He alleged that gas supply in elite residential sectors was regular, while other areas were receiving stepmotherly treatment.
