Partial strike observed in Balochistan on call of opposition parties

QUETTA: A strike was observed in Quetta and some other towns and cities of Balochistan on Friday on the call of opposition parties against the government for allegedly ignoring the constituencies of opposition lawmakers in the budget for 2021-22 and the registration of an FIR against 17 legislators.

All business and trade centres in Quetta and some other cities were closed, except some shops in the areas on the outskirts of Quetta.

Though it was not a wheel jam strike, traffic on roads in Quetta remained thin.

The local administration deployed a heavy contingent of police and personnel of other security forces in and around Quetta to avert any untoward incident.

Members of the opposition parties took out a protest rally in Quetta.
