Islamabad: Minister for Energy Hammad Azhar Sunday said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government is introducing virtual gas pipe line system of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) to overcome energy shortage in the country.  

The federal minister was talking to a private news channel today and said that the provision of gas to domestic consumers during the winter season is government’s first priority.

“The government will receive two extra Liquefied Natural Gas cargoes next month to fulfill the requirement of the gas in the country,” he said.

The Energy Minister further added that the consumption of gas increases 3% in every winter season and the government is making all-out efforts to meet the domestic demand of gas.

“The past regimes had set up expensive power plants in the country unnecessarily, which was the major cause of increasing the prices of electricity in the country,” the minister added.

Pakistan vs Bangladesh: Match called off due to rain on Day 2 of Dhaka Test

Dhaka: Day two of the second Test between Pakistan and Bangladesh was eventually called off Sunday following multiple delays and resumptions due to rain in Dhaka.

The play had resumed after lunch, following rain and bad light that saw the morning session in Dhaka cancelled.

However, the play had to be called off for the day due to persistent rain and a wet outfield. Day three is now scheduled to start at 9:30am local time.

Only 57 overs of play were possible on the first day on Saturday, when Pakistan reached 161-2, with skipper Babar Azam unbeaten on 60 alongside Azhar Ali, 36 not out.

Day one of the second Test was halted due to rain and bad light and it was said that the game will be resumed half an hour ahead of the scheduled time. However, the play did not resume after the tea break on Saturday.

Captain Babar Azam struck a fifty to help Pakistan make steady progress against Bangladesh before bad light forced early stumps on Saturday.

The Azam-Ali duo put on 91 runs in their unbroken third-wicket stand after Bangladesh left-arm spinner Taijul Islam removed both openers in the morning session at a 59-runs score.

Azam led the batting charge hitting seven fours and a six so far, and brought up his 19th Test fifty after rain briefly halted the game.
