Long marchers from Loralai to Quetta called off their week-long protest in front of the Quetta Press Club on Thursday after the assurance of provincial ministers.

A long march organised by the Loralai Justice Panel, travelled by foot from Loralai district to Quetta, the capital city of Balochistan.

The participants of the long march reached Que­tta last week by foot, in support of their demands which inc­luded making all Natio­nal Highways dual carriageway, stopping imposition of taxes in tribal areas of Zhob division and other districts.

A few Provincial Ministers and the Commissioner of Quetta Division held talks with leaders of protestors. The protesters were assured that all steps would be taken to resolve their problems.

A leader of protestors, Asfandyar Khan, announced that they had ended their protest sit-in. Provincial ministers Noor Muhammad Dummar and Metha Khan Kakar were also present at the press conference.

According to the ministers, a meeting held between Loralai Justice Panel representatives and government officials on the special directive of CM Balochistan.

A four-member committee has been formed after the negotiations, which would continue to communicate with provincial ministers and relevant departments to resolve issues on a priority basis.
