PM directs uninterrupted gas, power supply in Ramazan

Says I will not allow any more wastage of people’s hard-earned money and loss to national exchequer.

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Monday directed the government departments concerned to ensure uninterrupted gas and power supply to consumers in Ramazan.

He chaired a meeting which was attended by Senators Ishaq Dar and Dr Musadik Malik, Sheza Fatima Khawaja, Ahad Khan Cheema, Jahanzeb Khan, Muhammad Aurangzeb, Ali Pervaiz Malik and relevant senior officers.

He instructed strict monitoring of the prices in all cities by the district administration to check profiteering abd provide all food items  at controlled rates to the consumers.

Prime Minister Shehbaz directed the relevant authorities to ensure uninterrupted gas supply to the industrial sector as well.

Before the start of Ramazan, hoarders create an artificial shortage of essential items and jack up prices and blame the suppliers for the price hikes.

On the directions of the provincial governments, however, Ramazan Sasta bazaars have been set up to supply essential items to consumers at low rates.
