People in Karachi suffer gas outages this Ramadan season

| @indiablooms | 19 Mar 2024, 07:10 pm

Ramadan season is ongoing but things might not be simple for people in Karachi as they are facing gas disruptions contrary to the Sui Southern Gas Company’s (SSGC) claims of no load-shedding during Sehr and Iftar.

As per the details, gas load-shedding is being carried out in Saddar, Surjani Town, Garden, Nishtar Road, Punjab Town, Lyari, Agra Taj Colony, Khawaja Ajmer Nagri, Malir and other area despite the assertions that there would be no gas load-shedding during Sehr and Iftar, reported Ary News.

SSGC’s Spokesman Salman Ahmed conceded the outage during Sehr and Iftar timing and told the newc channel that millions of stoves are switched on simultaneously during the timings.

“Millions of stoves burning simultaneously reduces the gas pressure, ” he added.

Salman Ahmed said that 90 per cent of the schedule given for Sehr Iftar is being implemented.

The spokesman said that consumers also resort to ‘illegal’ ways to draw gas by using compressors.
