The industrialist has made charter of demands to government and they said that Sindh is the largest gas producing province so why government close the supply of gas to Sindh as the Federal Government has collected huge revenue from Sindh so Sindh has the right of gas more than other provinces.
They further said that if government is closing the gas supply they must issue letters to give industries immunity from all taxes and they also support the labourers’ families. They further demanded that if government would not continue the supply of gas the factories owners and labourers would protest over the matter.
They further said that in this regard a delegation of chambers would meet with the SSGC to discuss the matter and others chambers of Sindh would also join the protest.
