Balochistan traders announce shutter down strike against Chaman border’s closure
March 13, 2017

QUETTA, 13 March: The Chaman Traders and All Traders Union have announced shutter down strike on March 19 in protest against the Pak-Afghan Chaman border closure.

Addressing a news conference in Quetta on Sunday, the Chaman traders’ union leaders including Haji Lal Jan, Maulvi Abdul Khaliq and Sadiq Achakzai said that the Pak-Afghan border closure is discrimination with traders.

They said that the border closure has increased unemployment and given rise to incidents of robberies and other crimes in Chaman.

“On March 19 complete shutter down strike will be observed in Chaman. Later wheel jam strike will be observed across the city with the support of political parties, social workers, tribal elders, traders union and shopkeepers,” they announced.

Separately, PPP Khyber Agency chapter’s president Hazrat Wali Afridi led a protest rally from the Landikotal headqaurters hospital to the Press Club against the closure of Torkham border. The protesters holding placards and banners chanted slogans against closure of the gate between Pakistan and Afghanistan.

One of the protesters, Shah Rehman Shinwari said the closure of the Torkham and Chaman borders compelled traders to shift businesses to other areas of Pakistan.
