Party members and supporters held sit-ins on the Grand Trunk Road near Nowshera, Karakoram Highway in Hazara region, Chakdara road in Malakand division and Indus Highway near Bannu.
JUI -F leader Asif Iqbal Daudzai says the blockades will continue until JUI-F Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman issues new orders.
According to sources, the government has directed commissioners of relevant divisions and districts to engage with protestors. However there is no attention to use force against the JUI-F supporters, but they would be engaged in talks to end the protest.
Officials say alternate arrangements have been made for the traffic on all blocked highways.
Meanwhile, JUI-F will be continuing with Plan B in Sindh without PPP’s support. Sindh Minister for Information Saeed Ghani said, “It’s very clear from day one that we have supported all the protest activities which don’t disturb a common man’s life”, as JUI-F’s plan will be getting in the way of people’s daily commute.
