OUR STAFF REPORTER LAHORE Lahore Township Industrial Areas is again facing massive unscheduled loadshedding. There is almost no production in more than 300 industrial units due to prolonged power outages. If situation remains the same, it would be impossible for the government to achieve the revenue target of Rs.1952 set for the financial year 2011-12. In a press statement issued here Friday, the PIAF Chairman Sohail Lashari, Chairman Lahore Township Industries Association Haroon Shafiq Chaudhry and Chairman Pakistan Autoparts Manufacturing and Exporters Association Tahir Javed Malik said that it was very unfortunate that despite an agreement between LESCO and industrialists that there would be no loadshedding from 12:00 am to 5:00 am, the LESCO authorities resorted to repeated power outages in a clear violation of agreement with the industrialists of the area thus putting the entire industry in deep troubles. They said that if immediate measures were not taken to ensure continuous supply of electricity to the industrial units, nothing could stop the industrial wheel from coming to a grinding halt and resultant massive lay-offs. They said that industry was already passing through a very difficult times and the none-supply of power adding fuel to fire. They said that this would not only bring the graph of exports o down but would also jack up the graph of unemployment in the country. They appealed to the Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gillani and Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif to look into the matter and ensure supply of power and gas to the industrial units on priority basis. Meanwhile, Chairman, Pakistan Tanners Association (PTA), Khurshid Alam has strongly condemned the gas supply suspension to leather industry, which is already facing severe crisis. Gas suspension is causing great hardships in the production to fulfil the export orders committed by the PTAs members with their valued foreign buyers, he added. Khurshid Alam informed that this alarming situation has repeatedly been brought into the notice of the President of Pakistan, Prime Minister of Pakistan, Commerce Minister, Chairman, FBR, Finance Minister and other concerned ministries, but without any outcome as yet. He apprehended that the in view of deteriorating situation which is getting worse day by day specially for leather industry of Pakistan, PTAs members would be left no choice other than joining the agitation and country wide protest against gas supply suspension.
