Thousands of people continued their demonstration in Pakistan's Gwadar city for the 17th continued day as they demanded for clean drinking water and an end to "trawler mafia", among many other needs, media reports said.

Protestors from Gwadar, Turbat, Pishkan, Zamran, Buleda, Ormara and Pasni are taking part in the Gwadar Ko Huqooq Do Tehreek (Give Rights to Gwadar Movement) led by Maulana Hidayatur Rehman, a local leader of the Jamaat-i-Islami, reports Dawn News.

They said they will continue the protest until demands are met.

Balochistan Minister for Planning and Development Mir Zahoor Ahmed Buledi was quoted as saying by Dawn News that the provincial government had started working on the demands as soon as the protest was announced by Rehman.

He said he had held three rounds of talks with the protest leader and termed the demands "legitimate and pro-public".
