Tens of thousands of anti-government protesters have inflicted a colossal loss to the national economy vowing to stay in the streets until Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif resigns, said Engineer Suhail Bin Rashid, president of the Faisalabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
“The protesters have created problems for millions of people, in addition to hatching a deep-rooted conspiracy against democracy by insisting on unlawful, undemocratic and unconstitutional demands,” said Rashid. “The time has now come for the business community to rise against all such unconstitutional acts and vow to fully support democracy in Pakistan.”
Rashid was critical of the unprecedented economic loss during the past few days and said that a few thousand people have hijacked the country’s political and economic order, in addition to choking the entire economic activities in the country.
