KARACHI: Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) President Mian Abrar Ahmad on Wednesday expressed deep concern on a SMS sent by Karachi Electric Supply Company (KESC) to industrialists stating that it plans to start load shedding in industrial areas due to curtailment of gas by Sui Southern Gas Company Limited (SSGC). In meeting at SITE Association of Industry, SSGC Managing Director said that KESC had not paid Rs32 billion dues to SSGCL and consequently supply of gas to KESC will be curtailed. Ahmad said owing to curtailed gas supply to KESC he feared load shedding in all industrial areas of Karachi which will severely hamper industrial activities.
