KP, GB bound­ary is­sue

Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL - AB­DUL KHALIQ QURESHI

ABBOTTABAD—In lieu of re­main­ing Khyber Pakhtunkhawa and Gil­git Bal­tas­tan bound­ary land com­pen­sa­tion amount claimants have threat­ened Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment to block Karako­rum High­way (KKHW) if their de­mand would not be ful­filled by May 15, 2016.

Chair­man Ac­tion Com­mit­tee, Saadul­lah Qureshi warned the gov­ern­ment that the bound­ary dis­pute en­tered into intolerable sit­u­a­tion be­cause of none heed on the is­sue long ago, due to which the peo­ple of Ko­his­tan can­not hes­i­tate any­more in­stead to claim their due right of com­pen­sa­tion of bound­ary landed prop­erty fol­low­ing the rel­e­vant rev­enue record.

Chair­man of Ac­tion Com­mit­tee, Saadul­lah Qureshi said that we are se­ri­ous in our de­mand, and the gov­ern­ment should make pub­lic the one man’s com­mis­sion’s re­port on the bound­ary dis­pute be­tween the KP and GB re­spec­tively, oth­er­wise we will change our one hour block­ade, and would ex­pand to con­tinue per­ma­nent blockad­ing of the KKHW soon af­ter the forth- com­ing May 15 of this month.

How­ever, the sit in was en­tered into 10 con­sec­u­tive days, be­tween the bound­ary of KP and GB, there­fore, there would be no chance ap­peared on be­half of the gov­ern­ment to en­ter into am­i­ca­bly ad­dress such a po­ten­tial but le­gal is­sue, thus the pol­icy of the gov­ern­ment has no solid ground to pro­long such is­sue any fur­ther, hence, now en­tire stake­hold­ers com­pelled the whole seg­ment of Ko­his­ta­nis to take se­ri­ous ac­tion sans which there was no sub­sti­tute way to ad­dress the pre­vail­ing plight fol­low­ing the peace and har­mony in this re­gard.

In ad­di­tion, the pro­tes­tors hold­ing ban­ners and plac­ards in­scribed with slo­gans in sup­port of their de­mands blocked KKHW for an hour caus­ing in­con­ve­nience among com­muters trav­el­ling be­tween KP and to re­main­ing parts of the whole coun­try. The Chair­man Ac­tion Com­mit­tee, Saadul­lah Qureshi to­gether with other speak­ers warned that they will con­tinue their protest un­til and un­less the gov­ern­ment made their com­mis­sion’s re­port to pub­lic
