KARACHI: Liaquatabad Tajran Market Alliance President Ansar Baig Qadri said on Tuesday that the order of Sindh government to close down markets at 9PM is sheer injustice with traders.

In a press release, he said if government compelled them to close down their business forcefully then they would announce their next course of action. He said the crisis of electricity has taken a horrible turn and claimed more than 550 lives. He said K-Electric and Sindh government are directly responsible for this situation. He said the traders would lodge a case against them.

Qadri said to avoid this situation, the government should have constituted a long term strategy for supply of electricity keeping in view the weather changes but due to their negligence the citizens have to face prolonged power outages.
