Conspiracy to divide Gilgit Baltistan people will fail, says GBUM
The conspiracies to divide Gilgit-Baltistan would be foiled and pressure would be mounted on both India and Pakistan to open the Kargil-Ladakh- Gilgit-Baltistan routes.This was stated by Gilgit-Baltistan United Movement chairman Manzoor Hussain Parwana, general secretary Ghulam Shehzad Agha and joint secretary Ismail Zia while addressing the party workers.Thye said efforts would also be made to compel India and Pakistan to withdraw their forces and other officials from Kargil-Ladakh and Gilgit Baltsitan.We will also give an impetus to the ongoing struggle for attainment of basic rights of the region, they declared.They said the rulers had been trying their level best to divide the people of the region by dividing them on the sectarian basis and perpetuate their rule. They asked the people of the region to rise above petty issues and forge unity in their ranks to foil the designs of the rulers and get their due rights.They said the main objective of their party was to take out the people from strife and make them a united nation and identity. When Pashtoons, Baloch, Sindhis and Punjabis identify themselves on the basis of their nationalities, why not the people of Gilgit-Baltistan who are a distinct people in all aspect. They said a specific coterie of people were out to divide the people of the region on petty issues, so that they cannot rise to fight for their rights.They asked the local government officials to keep a close vigil on such elements and safeguard the interest of the region.
