According to details, a joint meeting of the MQM London and Karachi Raabita Committees held a detailed review of the provincial budget.
The meeting expressed immense disappointment over the absence of development projects in the budget, non-resolution of public issues and unemployment in urban Sindh, despite the submission of a shadow budget and written recommendations by MQM.
While rejecting ‘hateful, biased and anti-urban Sindh budget’, the party called for a shutter-down strike on Sunday.
RC members appealed traders, industrialists, shopkeepers and transporters to keep their respective activities suspended on Sunday against the ‘hateful budget’ and to make the strike successful.
The meeting slammed Peoples Party for saying that by presenting anti-urban Sindh budget the PPP once again demonstrated its discriminatory and racist thoughts, which the MQM will not accept in any case.
