However, if such outages do occur, please let the MOC know so that it can be brought to the attention of the concerned Ministry to take corrective action.
Earlier, Sindh Energy Minister Imtiaz Sheikh said that this is the third winter during the tenure of the PTI-led government at the Centre and again this time people are facing a gas crisis.
He said that the federal government is in a state of confusion over the issue. In a statement, he said that all tall claims and promises made by the federal energy minister last year proved to be false. “The gas crisis is being aggravated by incompetent rulers and their failed policies,” he claimed.
