On the 11th of December, the Sui Southern Gas Company stopped the gas supply to all the CNG stations in the province for an indefinite period of time. The gas supply resumed after a lapse of 6 days when Imran Ismail—the governor and the minister for petroleum—Ghulam Sarwar intervened into the situation.
The suspension of CNG for those 6 days proved a tough situation for the citizens especially the ones who commute daily as they faced serious issues in traveling to their respective destinations. Owing to the gas suspension the fares of rickshaws and taxis also hiked thus adding more to the troubles of the white-collar citizens.
