Lahore (HRNW) At least 70 people with visual disabilities were locked at a shelter house on Thursday in Lahore to stop them from staging a protest outside CM House.
The protesters were enraged after the police locked the shelter house they had gathered at. They had announced a protest against the government’s failure to fulfil their demands; jobs for the unemployed and employment of working people to be regularised.
“It has been four months now,” said a protester. “We had no other option but to protest again.” The police have trapped us, they hit us and even tore our clothes, another protester remarked.
