KARACHI: On account of Muharram, the Sui Southern Gas Company Thursday decided not to suspend gas supply.

In a notification issued by the gas supplier, the SSGC has decided not to suspend gas supply from August 5-8.

It was further announced that gas supply to captive power plants and industries will not be cut off, as well.

Earlier, the company had said it would suspend supply to CNG stations from August 5 to August 8.

It should also be noted that the federal government approved two holidays on account of Ashura (Muharram 9 and 10).

The holidays will fall on August 9 and 8 as Pakistanis and Muslims across the globe will observe the religious occasion with grief and sorrow.
