Women in Hala Matiari (Sindh) on Wednesday reached Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) office with kitchen utensils in their hands and threatened the staff with beating them up if the issues of gas load-shedding and low gas pressure persisted, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

According to reports, the women showed the zonal manager and staff plates, spoons and rods and demanded that either these issues be resolved or otherwise those responsible for the situation be handed over to them so that they could teach them a lesson. 

The women said due to gas load-shedding and low gas pressure they could not cook food for themselves and their families. 

The zonal manager, on the occasion, told the protesting women that SSGC was not responsible for the problem.
