‘Fix It’ supporters protest outside Governor House for Alamgir Khan’s release
According to details, volunteers of the popular ‘Fix It’ movement staged a sit-in protest at the road which led to the D.I.G.’s office in Karachi. As a result, traffic was suspended on the road, causing difficulties for the public. Volunteers carried out wall chalking on the walls outside of the Governor House. These protests were carried out as earlier in the day Sindh police had arrested social activist Alamgir Khan, who had initiated the ‘Fix It’ campaign.
Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf leader Imran Ismail was also part of the sit-in protest on the road that led to the D.I.G.’s office. Another key PTI leader Faisal Vawda had reached Civil Lines police station to have Alamgir Khan released.
The ‘Fix It’ campaign was launched a few months ago by Alamgir Khan, a social activist from Karachi against manholes and gutters in Karachi. The movement gained prominence on social media due to the unique protest method adopted by Alamgir–painting Qaim Ali Shah’s pictures beside very open manhole in the city.
Today, Alamgir Khan had arrived at the Chief Minister House with a tractor filled with garbage to protest against the city’s worsening waste disposal condition. He was heckled and arrested by police near the Chief Minister’s House.
