The residents of Mian Ghulam Rasool Colony, Abid Colony and the adjoining areas are suffering prolonged loadshedding of gas. Besides these areas, the other worst-hit areas include: Mazhar Farid Colony, Javed Colony, Warind Colony, Kacha Shahi Road and their suburban areas.

Prolonged loadshedding of gas continues in Sadiqabad tehsil especially the areas mentioned above even against the schedule announced by the Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited thereby irritating the consumers especially women.

The affected citizens have demanded that the government and the SNGPL authorities should ensure the provision of gas as per the schedule. 

They complained that they were not supplied gas even in the morning and afternoon when they have to prepare breakfast and lunch for students.

The citizens told the media that the SNGPL had issued a loadshedding schedule but it was not being followed under the guise of work of laying down gas supply pipelines in the area. However, they said, they never saw any such work underway in the area.  They were of the view that the PML-N government was losing popularity among the people so it should provide the people with basic amenities instead of snatching the same from them.
