The law and order situation in Balochistan is a matter for concern for PPL. Repeated attacks on supply lines of natural gas from Sui gas field to rest of the country has become an order of the day. As a protective measure, Chief of Army Staff Ashfaq Pervez Kayani has ordered that Frontier Corps (FC) will take charge of Sui gas fields and army soldiers will be withdrawn from all over the province.
