KARACHI – Senior leaders of Pakistan Peoples Party clearly announced that no one would be allowed to forcefully shutdown Karachi on Dec 12.
Imran Khan has announced a shutdown in Karachi on December 12, as part of his Plan-C in the PTI’s campaign against alleged rigging in 2013 general elections.
While talking to media persons Manzoor Wassan said on Thursday that it will be the right of the people to shutdown their businesses or not on the call of Imran Khan.
He said after formation of the judicial commission the matters between Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf and the government would likely to improve.

On Dec 1, Karachi Traders Union President Atique Mir told Dawn that traders from the country’s commercial hub would not support Khan’s call for a shutdown on Dec 12. “Any such call will cost the national exchequer billions of rupees,” he said.
