Omar Ayub, Power Minister, alleged that the provincial government is to blame for the current gas shortage problems in Sindh. The government has failed to provide a suitable route for new pipelines in the province, he added. 

He also mentioned that Sindh government “is oppressing the people of Sindh" by not providing them the right solutions. 

A new gas pipeline will only be constructed once the Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) is given a route by the local authorities, said Ayub. 

He further reported that the federal government’s offer to provide LNG under Article 158 of the Constitution was rejected by the Sindh government.
