QUETTA Wednesday, April 20, 2011): All Pakistan Clerks Association (APCA) staged a kafan posh demonstration against price hike and lawlessness in front of the Quetta Press Club on Wednesday.
The protesters were wearing kafans (shrouds) and carrying placards and banners inscribed with slogans in support of their demands. They chanted slogans against the government to control the rising prices of daily-use commodities. Addressing the protesters, APCA provincial President, Mir Ahmed Baloch, said that the life of the common man had been affected by skyrocketing prices and on the other hand salaries were not being increased in accordance with inflation.
“Clerks cannot afford to send their children to school because of the high fees, or go to doctors, as they charge a heavy fee for a minor medical treatment,” he said. “The leaders who begged for votes during the last general elections in the name of religion had failed to provide relief to the poor people,” Baloch added.
