KARACHI: Federal Minis­­ter for Energy Omar Ayub Khan has assured Karachi-based industrialists of ending the weekly gas holiday and said the government is working to reallocate 211mmcfd gas to meet the city’s demand.

In a meeting with members of the Karachi Indus­trial Forum on Sunday at the Governor House, he said the government is working on a long-term plan for gas exploration to meet the national energy demand.
