The government of Pakistan has granted licenses for 10 exploration blocks to expedite  exploration activities, Federal Energy Minister Ghulam Sarwar Khan said on Friday. He was talking to newsmen at Karachi airport on his way to rural city Khairpur of Sindh. 

PTI is holding an event in Khairpur on Saturday to attract support in interior Sindh. “We have identified several blocks in Balochistan and government is working on a plan to start supply from these blocks into the system,” the minister said.

Khan informed that Prime Minister had advised him to meet governors of all the provinces to deliberate on gas shortage issue. “The gas supply issues would be solved in the Council of Common Interests (CCI), and no province would be deprived of its right,” minister said.

He said previous governments had destroyed the national economy and left piles of debts. “The flawed policies in past incentivised imports, while exports kept declining. Admitting supply shortage in Karachi, he said a deficit of Rs157 billion had adversely affected supply management capacity of Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC).

Ghulam Sarwar Khan said he once belonged to Pakistan People’s Party, which now had become a provincial political group. “Supply shortage is not the problem of Karachi alone, but several cities including Islamabad are having gas crisis as the country’s demand has out-paced the supply.”

The minister said PTI government would announce Karachi package soon adding Pakistan Steel Mill would also be restarted. The minister said he would file his recommendations for a package to mitigate poverty and solve other issues of interior Sindh.
