The strike call was given by the Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party (PKMAP) which was also supported by all other political and religious parties, including trade unions to express solidarity with teachers and demanding government for immediate fulfilment of their demands. The business and trade activities remained completely shut in the all main areas of the City, including Jinnah Road, Shara-e-Iqbal, Liaquat Bazaar, Double Road, Sirki Road, Abdul Sattar Road and Prince Road.Traffic plying on the roads was very thin as compared to normal days while the streets presented a deserted look, however, educational institutions, govt and private offices continued their work.In order to thwart any untoward incident, administration had taken strict security measures as police backed Frontier Corps and other law-enforcement agencies continued patrolling throughout the City.Meanwhile, addressing a Press conference at Quetta Press Club, the leaders of Balochistan National Party, PKMAP, National Party, ANP, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam and Hazara Democratic Party demanded of the government for taking immediate steps for fulfillment of demands of the teachers. They said that provincial government had accepted and promised last year that the demands of teachers were genuine and notification in this connection would soon be issued. However, despite lapse of several months no notification had been issued which was injustice, they added.They stressed that government should give up its non-serious attitude and accept the demands of teachers so that they could go to schools and perform their academic duties.
