    Gas supplies to the Pakistani prime minister's residence have been cut off over thousands of dollars of unpaid bills, it is reported.

    The residence and office of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is said to be 4.7m rupees ($48,000, £28,000) in arrears on its gas bills, reports Dunya News TV. But the premier's office is apparently just one of several official buildings to be disconnected in the capital city, Islamabad. Parliament House, Parliament Lodges and the Federal Shariat Court are some of the other government buildings currently without gas.

    All of the non-payers had been sent several notices but never responded, a spokesman for gas supplier Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited tells the Pakistan Tribune newspaper.

    Meanwhile, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is trying to crack down on electricity and gas theft and leakage. At a high-level meeting on Wednesday he called the practice unacceptable and said measures on a "war footing" should be taken against perpetrators, a statement from prime minister's office says.

    Basically, RAW stole all the available gas. Then they hacked into the billing system and inflated the usage so the huge bill. A bill that is totally baseless!

    This is a great Indian conspiracy to cut off gas and at same time manipulate and create huge bills to weaken Pakistan. :thumb:
