LAHORE - Ruling out discrimination against Punjab over gas load management, Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited Managing Director Rasheed Lone has reiterated gas curtailment is not Punjab specific. Additional shortfall of about 380-MMCF per day compels the SNGPL to enhance the gas holidays for the provincial (Punjabs) industry, he said while addressing a press conference at the SNGPL head office here on Monday. Earlier on Sunday, Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif rapped gas load management plan for the province, saying: The gas supply to the province is suspended intentionally to malign the Punjab government, ruining provincial industry that result in depriving the poor of their means of livelihood. However, the SNGPL DG told reporter that there was no discrimination against Punjab over gas supplies and impression of injustice with the province was totally wrong. He said according to the agreement, the company was authorised to suspend gas for industry and CNG sector to meet the demand of domestic consumers. From March 1 to 15, the industrial units across the province will face five-day gas loadshedding in a week, he said.
