Karachi- Muttahida Qaumi Movement chief Altaf Hussain called upon Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Punjab Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif to issue orders for the removal of containers from roads in Punjab cities.

In a statement issued today, Altaf Hussain said that the restrictions and barricaded roads were drastically impacting the lives of the poor laborers, adding that the heavy blockades had made it very difficult for people to transport patients to hospitals.

Meanwhile, he also appealed the public to protest against authoritarian and repressive measures.

Containers, in large number, have been placed on roads coming from Lahore and other Punjab cities.
