Islamabad, Nov 15 : Thousands of Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) protesters continued to block roads and highways across Pakistan on Friday as part of the party's 'Azadi March Plan B'.

According to Geo News, traffic flow remains affected in several parts of the country but the JUI-F's Balochistan chapter has announced to block the province's main highways from Friday to November 18.

While opposition parties have announced to support JUI-F's Plan B in Balochistan, Chief Minister Jam Kamal said that his government would not allow the demonstrators to block highways.

The protests, led by JUI-F chief Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman began with March on October 27 from Karachi.

Thousands of supporters reached Islamabad on October 31, holding a two-week sit-in on the city's main highway.

Rehman ordered them to disperse across the country on Wednesday to cripple key roads, in what he called 'Plan B' to topple Prime Minister Imran Khan.

On Thursday protesters blocked the Grand Trunk Road between Islamabad and Afghanistan's capital Kabul, causing lengthy delays.

Similar disruption was reported in Jacobabad, a city in Sindh linking the province with Balochistan and Punjab.
