Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) MNA Tahira Aurangzeb passed her statement to the National Assembly in November 2016 that gas load shedding is one of the leading causes behind the rising number of divorces in Pakistan. Tahira Aurangzeb, the mother of Minister of State for Information Marriyum Aurangzeb, told the lower house that quarrels between couples have become routine because wives are unable to prepare food on time for the household due to gas load shedding. "As a result, husbands get irritated, which leads to the couple getting separated," Aurangzeb claimed, adding the gas load shedding has spawned a real menace. Aurangzeb also questioned the government about progress on the multi-billion-dollar Iran-Pakistan (IP) gas pipeline project and demanded the house be updated on it.  [2] stance
