Quetta—Religious scholars Wednesday urged people to follow instructions of Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) for adopting preventive measures while using their gas heaters and stoves to avert any untoward incident during the winter season.
Addressing a seminar organized by the Sui Southern Gas Company here at Quetta Press Club, Maulana Anwarul Haque Haqqani, Maulana Mohib Agha, Maulana Abdul Rehman and others said in the past several persons had died during winter due to gas leakage because of not switching off heaters at night.
The people must follow SSGC instructions and turn off gas heaters before going to sleep, they stressed. They suggested the Sui Southern Gas Company officials to include specific chemical in natural gas which indicated gas leakage.
They also urged the people to avoid stealing natural gas as theft was a sin. A senior Sui Southern Gas Company official Nisar Ahmed Sheikh said the company would welcome proposals and suggestions for further improving the gas supply system. “We are taking practical measures to facilitate consumers regarding gas supply,” he added.
Another Sui Southern Gas Company official Agha Muhammad Baloch said steps were being taken to address complaints received from the consumers.—APP
