When natural gas was discovered in the country in the 1950s, it was estimated that Pakistan had enough to last a hundred years. Since then, many more fields have been discovered, yet we are now facing a serious shortage of gas. The "credit" for this goes to the past government of Musharraf and Shaukat Aziz, who allowed CNG to be used in vehicles. 

Where I live, the gas supply was always constant, but in other parts of the city the gas pressure would go very low and people would complain about it. But we always assumed that in those areas, there was rampant theft of gas and misuse of it in electric generators. Now we have been two days without any gas, and for the first time in sixty years I had to bathe with cold water today. 

The present "selected" government is also to blame, as it did not allow an LNG carrying vessel to berth due to what it thought were very high prices negotiated by the previous government. 

Consequently the majority province would have been without gas this winter, so they transferred gas from Sindh to Punjab to pacify their voters in that region.

I wonder if we'll be able to survive much longer if the situation continues as it has since this government came into power. The country is headed for a breakdown because Imran Khan and his ministers don't know anything about governance. Let's hope we don't have another breakup of the country, as happened in 1971.
