As Sindh’s CNG shortage enters the sixth day, residents get restless

The PPP has threatened to protest if the gas issue isn't resolved

Karachi and the rest of Sindh are without CNG for the sixth consecutive day and people are getting restless.

CNG stations are deserted and public transport is almost non-existent. Residents of Karachi have to pay for private transport and are worried about the cost.

Rickshaw and taxi drivers are asking for exorbitant rates and people have no choice but to fork out the money.

CNG station owners, like Abdul Haseeb Khan, say they don’t know when the supply of CNG will be restored. They’re as worried about the situation as the rest of the province.

On Thursday, the PPP called a protest against the gas shortage in Sindh if the federal government did not restore CNG supply within 24 hours. The party’s Sindh president MPA Nisar Khuhro has threatened to cut off gas leaving the province’s gas fields.

Despite 70% of the gas being ours, we aren’t getting any, he lamented during a press conference on Thursday. The Sindh chief minister’s adviser on information and law said a law and order situation could be created due to the shortage.

Prime Minister Imran Khan had dissolved the boards of the Sui Southern and Northern gas companies over the crisis.
