No let-up in gas load shedding in Ramazan

Contrary to SNGPL’s claims, gas is absent in Peshawar areas

Our Correspondent March 24, 2023


Contrary to the claims of the Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL), gas load shedding continues in different areas of Peshawar, creating trouble for citizens at Sehr and Iftar.

The SNGPL had announced that during the holy month of Ramazan, gas would be supplied during Sehr from 3am to 7am and Iftar from 4pm to 8pm. In spite of this, even during the first Sehr, due to the lack of gas in many areas, people faced many difficulties. But contrary to the claim of gas supply from 4pm to 8pm in the evening, the gas supply was closed.

However, while the supply of gas to the houses was stopped, there was no difference in the supply of gas to the CNG stations.

Moreover, the Water and Power Development Authority (Wapda) increased load shedding of electricity as well. The authorities had not issued any prior notice in this regard and no reason was given for unexplained load shedding.

The people demanded of the government to take immediate notice of the situation and rectify it.
