Claimants threaten to block KKH untill demands met
KP, GB boundary issue
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
