The nanbais in Balochistan have gone on strike on Thursday. They demand to fix the price of roti at Rs.30.
As per reports, the Nanbai association said that the strike would continue throughout the province for an undefined period of time.
It said the nanbais want to sell roti weighing 320 grams at Rs.30 due to inflating rates of wheat flour. Besides, the association said they are urged to use gas cylinders due to the non-availability of natural gas.
