The Islamabad Chamber of Commerce & Industry (ICCI) has expressed great concerns over the gas loadshedding to industry in the federal capital as it would badly affect their productivity and ultimately hurt the overall economy.
In a statement here on Wednesday, President ICCI Sardar Yasir Ilyas Khan said that the supply of gas has been stopped abruptly to various industries in Islamabad including steel re-rolling mills, steel furnaces, which has badly disturbed their production schedules.
He said that this unwise decision would cause closure of many industries and render hundreds of workers jobless.
The ICCI President said that the supply of gas to industry has been suspended in the peak summer season, which has never happened before as domestic consumption of gas in summer season normally comes down to the lowest level.
