14 June, 2015
KARACHI: In a late-night development, the MQM’s Coordination Committee reviewed its call for strike for Sunday, urging people to observe the strike for half a day only.
The MQM had given the strike call in protest against the Sindh government’s `anti-people’ budget for 2015-16 presented in the provincial assembly earlier in the day.
Later, the party in a statement asked shopkeepers, transporters and the general public to resume their normal activities at 1pm on Sunday.
The MQM said that all sections of society were busy preparing for the holy month of Ramazan, therefore after registering their protest for half a day, the people should resume their activities.
