Protestors blocked main Sukkur-Larkana Highway at Mahotta and Chooharpur villages. They burnt tyres & bushes and chanted slogans against the banned outfits and the Sindh government.
Due to strike all shops, business centers, bazaars, petrol pumps and shopping centers remained closed in these areas due to which commuters felt great hardships.
