LAHORE: Various trader associations of Lahore observed a strike against the persistent power breakdowns and rise of petroleum prices.

On the strike call issued by the All Pakistan Traders Association (APTA), all major markets of the city remained closed on Saturday, while a partial boycott was observed in the smaller markets.

The Jamaat-e Islami, Khaksaar Tehreek and Pakistan Tehreek-e Insaaf also supported the strike and rallies were held in other parts of the province.
