PM orders resumption of gas supply to KE

KARACHI: After almost a month-long power crisis faced by Karachiites, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi intervened on Monday and asked the Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) to resume supply to K-Electric, which had been using a shortage of gas as a pretext for the current prolonged outages.

The PM appointed his adviser on finance Miftah Ismail to look into the issue of outstanding dues between the two utilities for its early resolution.
