Traders announce strike as govt refuses to take SRO-608 back

ISLAMABAD: The government had promised to remove SRO- 608 by the first week of December 2014, but to no avail.
The traders have decided to go on strike on December 31 throughout the country. During a meeting, the government officials ensured the traders on November 28 to remove the SRO, but later Finance Minister Ishaq Dar on his return from Russia backtracked during a meeting with FBR Chairman Tariq Bajwa. This has compelled the traders to announce a countrywide strike on December 31.
