The residents of Quetta have complained that the protest by employees of the Bolan Medical College outside the provincial assembly has created issues for them to commute freely.
A lockdown has been imposed in some parts of the city yet protests are being held in public spaces and red zones.
The citizens have said that because of this it has gotten very difficult for them to travel from one place to another as the police have blocked protest areas with barricades. Due to this, the traffic coming from one-way causes congestion.
“Protests and sit-ins such as these should not take place,” a resident said, adding that even the court and assembly has banned them.
The protesters, on the other hand, said that they will not end their protests unless their demands are fulfilled by the government.
They have demanded that the previous status of the college should be restored by the government. The Bolan Medical College was changed from a college to a university. the move was resented by both teachers and students.
