Fishermen in the port city of Gwadar will resume their protest on Monday (tomorrow) as the government has failed to resolve the issue of changing the design of Eastbay Expressway.
This was announced by Fishermen Alliance Committee president Khuda-i-Dad Wajo at a press conference here on Saturday. Local leaders of different political parties were present on the occasion to show their solidarity with the fishermen.
Mr Wajo said that the committee had postponed its protest three months ago on the assurance of Balochistan Information Minister Mir Zahoor Ahmed Buledi and officials of the port authorities that Eastbay Expressway would be redesigned to protect the livelihood of the fishermen of Gwadar.
The fishermen fear that the under-construction road will block their access to the sea.
However, Mr Wajo said, despite passage of three months no work had been started for redesigning of the project and protection of the fishermen’s rights.
