SUKKUR: The Federal Minister for Religious Affairs, Syed Khurshid Shah, has said that gas crisis was the outcome of unnecessary interruptions by courts.
Talking to media persons here on Monday, Syed Khurshid Shah said that courts have been mandated to provide justice to people and not to resolve the gas crisis. He said that when the government suspends gas supply to CNG stations, industries or domestic consumers to balance the shortage, courts issue stay orders due to which the issue remains unresolved.
The minister said the government was sparing no efforts, and all available resources were being utilized to overcome the gas crisis. Commenting on the Information and Broadcasting Minister Firdous Ashif Awan’s resignation during the federal cabinet meeting, Khurshid Shah said it was the result of a misunderstanding which was soon removed by the prime minister after holding a meeting with the minister.
