PESHAWAR: A group of residents from Charsadda district on Wednesday held a protest demonstration here against SNGPL for carrying out unscheduled loadshedding in peak hours, and demanded of the company’s general manager Arbab Saqib to take notice of the irresponsible attitude of local officials to ensure smooth gas supply.
The protesters led by Dosehra village council nazim Haji Mir Rehman, were holding banners and placards inscribed with their demand for ensuring smooth supply of natural gas to over 4,000 population of the UC.
Speaking on the occasion, Mir Rehman said that the people of Dosehra area had been facing acute shortage of gas for last over five months where the supply was suspended at peak morning and evening hours and the residents had to use liquefied petroleum gas which was very costly.
Elders, including Haji Firdus Khan, Jahangir Khan and a former nazim Ilyas khan also shared their views and said that they were regularly paying monthly bills but even then they were subjected to excessive gas loadshedding.
