KARACHI – On Monday, Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP), which demanded the government modify fuel rates, called for a partial shutdown of the country’s businesses.
Many markets and gas stations were reportedly shut down in Lahore, Karachi, Faisalabad, Mandi Bahauddin, Bahawalpur, and Chichawatni, according to reports in the local media.
People were inconvenienced by the strike because transportation services were still partially disrupted in several areas of the nation.
Many markets in significant metropolises were open today despite the protests. Although they opted against halting markets, traders insisted that they would support the protest against inflation.
As thousands of tweets have been uploaded on the microblogging service, the closure has continued to trend on social media sites.
Saad Rizvi, the leader of the right-wing party, claimed to be a vocal supporter of human rights and stated that the Pakistani people will back their call for a strike. Due to the painful inflation, we were forced to announce the strike, Rizvi stated.
He also criticised the current administration for failing to assist the suffering people.
