ABBOTABAD: Political activists continued their protest in support of Hazara province on Friday. Workers belonging to Tehrik-i-Suba Hazara (TSH), Hazara Qaumi Mahaz and MQM,blocked the Karakoram Highway for nearly two hours and held a sit-in at Shuhada Chowk. The activists also lit fires and chanted slogans against the ANP and PML-N for opposing the 20th amendment moved by the MQM seeking creation of Hazara and Seraiki provinces. They also criticised elected representatives from Hazara, who, according to them, had betrayed their people for personal interests. The success of their movement, they said, can be ascertained by the fact that the issue, which started from the streets in Abbottabad, is now being discussed in the national assembly.
