KARAK -- The Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) on Friday inaugurated a sale meter station (SMS) in Nari Panos area thus, meeting the longstanding demand of the locals.
Speaking on the occasion, in-charge SNGPL Karak Engr Ismatullah Khan Gandapur said Nari Panos would be made a model village where all households would get gas connections.
He said the gas facility would be provided to the entire district in phases and claimed the low gas pressure issue would be resolved with the provision of legal gas connections.
He said with the installation of SMS the longstanding demand of the people of Nari Panos and Bahaderkhel union councils would be resolved.
Mr Gandapur recalled that the people of both the union councils had staged protests in the past, calling for setting up the SMS.

Members of the gas action committee thanked the deputy commissioner and SNGPL for resolving the longstanding demand of the people.
