President takes notice of textile industry gas supply suspension

President Asif Ali Zardari has taken serious notice of the textile industry gas supply suspension and constituted a committee to oversee gas load management of SNGPL mandating that any further gas load shedding would be done with the approval of the committee.

Referring to the decision of the meeting dated 28th March 2011, the President Secretariat has constituted a committee comprising Syed Khurshid Shah, Minister for Religious Affairs, Raja Pervez Ashraf, MAN, Gohar Ejaz, Chairman APTMA and anwar Saifullah, MPA, KPK, to oversee gas load management of SNGPL and mandating that any further gas load shedding would be done with the approval of the committee.

However, the SNGPL is still issuing a schedule for 3.5 days gas supply arbitrarily and contradicting clear-cut directions from the President for providing uninterrupted gas supply to textile for five days a week.

In a letter to the MD SNGPL, Chairman All Pakistan Textile Mills Association - APTMA Gohar Ejaz has taken serious notice of the gas supply suspension to the textile industry arbitrarily by the SNGPL and said that the SNGPL was defying President's direction.

Chairman APTMA has reminded him of the direction of President Asif Ali Zardari to provide uninterrupted gas supply to the textile industry for five days a week, enabling it to perform and achieve textile export targets of $14 billion by June 2011.

However, Gohar regretted that the SNGPL has arbitrarily issued gas curtailment schedule to 3.5 days a week on 30th March without obtaining approval from the committee.

According to him, the President's direction specifies clearly that any gas load shedding by the SNGPL from 30th March 2011 should have been done after seeking approval from the committee, constituted to oversee gas load management of SNGPL.

He termed the latest gas load management schedule contradiction of the President's desire and direction and has urged the MD SNGPL to provide uninterrupted gas supply to the textile industry as assured by the President of Pakistan in the larger interest of the industry and exports immediately.
