Demo against low gas pressure


NAUNDERO: Many villagers held a protest demonstration in front of local Sui gas office against load shedding of gas here on Thursday.

These villagers belonged to Rahooja, Phulpota, Bhoonbhatpur, Izzat Ji Wandh, Naundero and others. They complained that they have been regularly clearing their monthly bills but Sui gas pressure in their respective areas always remains very low during cooking timings.

Jamil Abro, Riaz Mangi, Suhrab Lashari, Mushtaque Rahoojo, Sikander Abbasi, Nadim Abro, Sajid Abro, Najaf Rahoojo and other protestors told media that their womenfolk are forced to cook meal over dung, bushes and burning wood despite the fact that they are sent exorbitant monthly gas bills.

They alleged that this is being done to provide full gas pressure to the owners of few furnaces business which is unjust and tantamount to deprive the citizens of their basic right. They demanded Sui gas should be supplied to them at proper pressure or else they will be forced to surround the gas office on Monday.
