ISLAMABAD/RAWALPINDI: Gas load shedding hit twin cities as the weather turned chilly on Saturday.
Citizens face immense difficulty as they are unable to switch on their heaters and some are forced to cook food on make-shift wood stoves.
In Islamabad, G6, G7, Golra Mor and Chak Shahzad areas suffered the worst gas loadshedding. In Rawalpindi gas loadshedding hit Dhamyal, Firozpura, Mohanpura, Gulzar Quaid and Raja Bazar areas.
