According to details, Aptma convened a meeting on the gas shutdown of 400 textile mills in Punjab.
Aptma also wrote a letter to the Prime Minister last night on the issue of the gas shutdown, in which he said that thousands of people are feared to be unemployed due to the closure of the industry; Prime Minister Imran Khan should immediately take notice of the matter.
It may be recalled that the gas crisis in Punjab has intensified, due to which the supply of gas to all the textile industries has been cut off.
It may be recalled that Aptma wrote a letter to Prime Minister Imran Khan on the alarming situation, in which he had said that gas supply to all textile mills had been cut off indefinitely. So already 9 MMBT of gas is being provided instead of 6 dollars.
The letter said that 70% of the country’s textile mills are in Punjab.
