Notably, a portal has predicted a record-breaking prolonged winter season in the country due to La-Nina and other climate change factors.

  • So Shahid Khaqan Abbasi was locked in jail for signing LNG deals with Qatar and Imran Khan told himself that PML_N did corruption and there is no gas shortage in the future. But now it seems that PML_N was right about LNG deals and future gas shortages and the short-sightedness of the current government is again hitting Pakistan with full force. We should think above Party affiliation to see the clearer picture. The so called looters were far better than this Naik government.

  • This incompetent government is fully responsible for this setback, those from oil and gas knows supply demand scenario of gas and widening gap, this year shortfall is 1.6bcfd, this is official number and will rise to nearly 6bcfd. They cried LNG deals as corruption in 2 years, NAB failed to prove. SKA was right. LNG import is still restricted, one terminal at 80%and second at 20-30%…I wonder this government is dreaming of some miracle a d had will come from heaven. People will suffer dearly.
