SITE industrialists slam low gas pressure


Staff Reporter


Senior Vice President of Site Association of Industry (SITE) Riaz Uddin has strongly condemned the non-supply of gas with the required pressure to the industries of SITE area and demanded from the government to ensure gas supply at full pressure as promised in various meetings.
In an appeal to government, Riaz Uddin said that before the onset of winter, several meetings with the industrialists at the government level, including Prime Minister Imran Khan, had promised that if the industrialists agreed to get gas at a higher tariff than usual, they would be given uninterrupted gas as per production demand.
“However, despite the higher tariff, the promise of gas supply at full pressure to industries has not been fulfilled,” he said, adding, “Production activities are being severely affected due to non-availability of gas to the industries of the SITE.”
