While taking serious notice of gas supply suspension to the textile industry in Punjab, President Asif Ali Zardari has directed the MD SNGPL to ensure five days a week uninterrupted gas supply to the textile industry in the province of Punjab.

According to the All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) spokesman, the President has further directed the concerned authorities to divert gas supply to the export-oriented textile industry from the power plants of Independent Power Producers (IPPs) in order to keep the industry wheel running and generate employment in the country.

He said President has also assured the APTMA delegation that the condition of gas supply suspension would be lifted from the textile industry once and for all with improvement in gas availability in the country.

It may be noted that Chairman All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) Gohar Ejaz led a delegation to President Asif Ali Zardari Tuesday on the suspension of gas supply to the textile industry in the province of Punjab.

Chairman APTMA Punjab Ahsan Bashir and President Khurarianwala Industry Association, Country's leading cluster of textile processing mills, Azhar Majeed Sheikh were also present on the occasion.

According to the spokesman, Managing Directors (MDs) Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Ltd (SNGPL), Sui Southern Gas Pipelines Ltd (SSGPL) and Pakistan Electric Power Company (Pepco) were also present in the meeting.

It may be noted that President Asif Ali Zardari has already announced 2011 as the year of textile industry. The textile millers in Punjab were heavily disturbed over latest notification from the SNGPL, suspending gas supply to textile industry for five days a week. An Extraordinary General Meeting of APTMA on Monday had appealed President Asif Ali Zardari for intervention to the situation and ask the SNGPL authorities to withdraw anti-industry notification.

APTMA spokesman said that Chairman APTMA has appreciated the timely action by the President Asif Ali Zardari and expressed the hope that the industry would play its due role in the economic progress of the country with uninterrupted supply of gas to production units.

Chairman APTMA also said energy plays the role of lifeline in the growth of any industry and textile industry is grateful to the President Asif Ali Zardari for understanding the importance of the issue and resolving it immediately, added the spokesman.
