Pakistan Is Facing Financial Crisis, People Are Using LPG In Plastic Bags
Pakistan News: Pakistan is facing severe financial crisis these days. Railways do not have enough fuel. The government does not have funds. The condition has become so bad that people are using LPG, which is filled in cylinders, by filling it in plastic bags. Whose pictures are going viral on social media.
Please tell that in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan’s most gas producing province, troubled people are cooking food by filling gas in bags. In this province, the gas cylinder is far from the reach of the common people. Although the gas filled in a plastic bag is no less than a moving bomb. For this reason, reactions are coming from all over the world on these pictures coming from Pakistan.
Due to rising inflation, it has become difficult for people to buy gas cylinders. This is the reason why Pakistani people are running the work on jugaad bharosa. It is being told that it has become difficult to get gas cylinders in Pakistan, so the local people are getting gas filled in plastic bags.
If media reports are to be believed, these days commercial gas cylinders are being sold in Pakistan for 10 thousand Pakistani rupees. In such a situation, it is not a matter of everyone’s capability to buy it. At the same time, LPG gas is available in plastic bags for Rs 500 to Rs 900. It is also available in bags of different sizes as per convenience. The compressor used to fill it is also available for just Rs 1500 to 2000. But in spite of all this, we should not forget that the gas filled in a plastic bag is very dangerous.

The demand for gas-filled plastic bags has also increased this time because the prices of wood and coal have doubled this year as compared to last year. According to Pakistani media, gas is not available at all in many cities of Sindh, Punjab and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa. Gas supply is being interrupted for several hours every day in major cities of Pakistan such as Karachi, Lahore, Hyderabad, Multan, Peshawar and Rawalpindi.
Let us tell you that according to a World Bank report in the month of April 2022, about 34 percent of the population of Pakistan is forced to live their lives on an income of only $ 3.2 i.e. 588 Pakistani rupees per day. On the other hand, the population of the low income group spends almost 50 percent of their total income on food. From this it can be estimated that what is the condition of the neighboring country Pakistan these days.
