The nationalists leaders appealed to the public that keep their business activities and transportation services shut.
Sindh United Party President Syed Jalal Mehmood Shah met nationalist leaders Mumtaz Bhutto at his residence and addressed a press conference.
He said that the government has rejected the people of Sindh by the ordinance restoring the local government system, adding that if the government did not withdraw its decision at once, they would not only observe a strike but also lay siege to the assembly. He said that the Pakistan People’s Party has lost its credibility and representation among the masses.
Sindh National Front chairman Mumtaz Bhutto said that the strike on August 13 would reflect the voice of the people. If the government did not change its way, it would definitely lose its remaining mandate.
