LAHORE:


The All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (Aptma) has warned that they will not follow any power and gas load management plan from next week if the government does not come up with a strategy to end power outages and ensure gas supply for at least five days a week.


Speaking at a press conference here on Wednesday, Aptma officials announced that they would register FIRs against government officials if they tried to stop gas supply or resort to load-shedding as courts had given stay orders against ‘unjustified’ outages.

Aptma Group Leader Gohar Ejaz told the media that they would not let their mills close at any cost and if any outages were enforced on the industry from Monday, they would take to streets and call for countrywide sit-ins.
