The women held a protest demonstration on Monday. The protesting women revealed that there was 16 to 18 hours long load shedding of gas for the domestic consumers in Sialkot, Daska, Sambrial, Uggoki, Chawinda, Badiana, Pasrur and surrounding areas. While, the pressure of the gas remains very low in the rest of time due to which they were unable to even prepare meals to eat.

The protesting women said that they had gas for two hours daily after every midnight due to which they had to wake up in the nights to get their meals cooked in the midnight, as their health was also disturbing due to restlessness and sleeplessness in the nights and in the dense foggy, sever cold and misty mornings as well.

This situation had been irking the domestic consumers, especially the females, for the last month, which said that the situation had now become unbearable for them, as there was no gas available to run their kitchens in such severe cold and dense foggy weather.
