The protesters stated that they have been facing hardships in the biting cold because of low gas pressure in their areas particularly near the airport road and Almon Chowk.
According to report, an unexpected drop in temperature throughout the country has deepened the ongoing gas crisis as the whole shortfall surged to 600 million metric cubic feet a day (MMCFD) that may additionally force the Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) and Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) to curtail the supply to sectors different than home consumers.
