All Pakistan Nanbai Association Announces Shutter-Down Strike in Punjab and KP

Lahore: The All Pakistan Nanbai Association has announced a shutter-down strike in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) on May 8th.

According to media reports, during a press conference attended by the office bearers from Punjab and KPK, Shafiq Qureshi, the president of the All Pakistan Nanbai Association, stated that an abrupt directive to reduce the price of bread was issued on the fourth day of Eid while gas prices are skyrocketing. He announced that Nanbais will hold a shutter-down strike on May 8th.

Qureshi mentioned that they have also filed a petition in the Rawalpindi High Court to secure their rights and warned of a nationwide protest if justice is not served. He questioned how bakers could offer relief when the government fails to reduce the cost of flour yet mandates a reduction in bread prices, and despite compliance, crackdowns continue.

He expressed willingness to provide relief to the public but urged the government to cooperate. He criticized the provincial governments of both Punjab and KPK for exacerbating the lives of Nanbais in their attempts to outdo each other.
