QUETTA: After the gas supply was suspended owing to broken pipes, obtaining liquid petroleum gas (LPG) was extremely difficult for residents of Quetta and other areas of Balochistan.
In the Balochistani district of Bolan, flash floods carried away electrical pylons and gas pipelines, cutting off electricity and gas to several areas of the province.
“There is no gas supply and there is also a shortage of LPG in the city causing great hardship for the local residents,” Nisar Khan, a resident of Nawakilli in Quetta told media.
LPG is in short supply, and Chief Minister Balochistan took note and ordered the administration to take action to make sure it is available.
Due to increased demand, the cost of LPG has risen to Rs500 per kilogram, according to a local journalist named Shah Hussain Tareen.
You might remember that at Bibi Nani Bridge in the Balochistan region of Bolan, 12 and 24 inch gas pipelines were destroyed by the floods. As a result, Zarghoon’s gas supply to Quetta city was also cut off.
Due to the damage of bridges and road linkages, Balochistan is still shut off, and the Bibi Nani Bridge fell in Bolan as a result of a torrential downpour.
