KARACHI: Sui Southern Gas Company Limited has not restored gas supply to K-Electric yet despite Prime Minister (PM) Shahid Khaqan Abbasi’s tall claims.
The premier, during his Karachi visit, had promised to supply 190 MMCFD gas supply to K-Electric to eliminate continuous power outages in Karachi. He said that the metropolis will not be deprived of electricity or water, adding that load shedding will be continued in the areas where power theft is at peak.
