Textile industry reproaches the gas suspension decision

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2015-09-16 11:45:00 – Mumbai

The Pakistan Textile Exporters Association has aggrieved over the authorities’ imprudent decision of gas suspension for industries in winter terming it as a unilateral action.

The association opined that the government should shelve its gas outage plan to bring the country’s economy out of sluggishness, as this suspension would lead innumerable people to lose their jobs and would also affect the industrial growth.

PTEA Chairman Sohail Pasha and PTEA Vice Chairman Rizwan Riaz Saigal said that the textile industry is already facing problems and this move of restricting gas would just exacerbate the situation.

They further stated that the government should make decisions considering the stakeholders as the country is already facing economic distress in terms of escalating cost of production.

The government wants to propel industrial growth but on the other hand has imposed cruel decisions as a result of which industries in Punjab, particularly textiles, are facing a decline, they added.

PTEA has appealed the government to look into the matter and ensure that the textile sector would get gas supply in winter thereby focusing on enhancement of the textile products.
