Federal Minister for Energy Hammad Azhar said Friday that 40 per cent Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) supply system has been restored, whereas, electricity and gas system will get improved from Monday, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Hammad Azhar addressing a press conference Friday said that Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) was not facing a gas shortage.

The federal minister criticised that some people tried to politicise the issue of electricity shortfall. He added that the government is overcoming the energy crisis and improvements will be seen in the electricity and gas system from Monday.
