Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) observed half day strike in Sindh on Sunday to register protest against the new provincial budget.

Our Karachi correspondent reports that there was a partial response to the strike call in the city.

Meanwhile, the Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Memon has said that the new provincial budget is people friendly and carries various public welfare projects.

He said forty-nine billion rupees have been allocated for development of Karachi city in the new budget but unfortunately MQM resorted to strike without going through the budget documents.
