FAISALABAD - Industrialists and daily wagers are facing huge trouble as the gas supply to textile industries of the city remained suspended for the eighth consecutive day on Sunday. According to the Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) sources, the decision of gas closure was made due to the gas crisis. It is to be noted here that the gas supply was to be restored on Sunday after four days' closure.

Owners of the industries said that they were facing huge loss due to the persistent suspension of gas supply. On the other hand, thousands of daily wagers and industrial employees were also deprived of their earnings due to the worst gas loadshedding. Advisor to Prime Minister on Petroleum and Natural Resources Dr Asim Hussain will return back from a foreign visit on Monday (today) and would meet the industrialists on Tuesday (tomorrow).
