Gilgit Baltistan:PPP won polls, not hearts, General Secretary GBUM

SKARDU: General Secretary Gilgit-Baltistan United Movement Ghulam Shahzad Agha has said Gilgit-Baltistan is at the cross-roads of its history with a number of crises hitting the region. He said whenever the PPP comes to power it staged a number of dramas in the region and the latest one of them was the introduction of the so-called empowerment package 2009 which has widely been rejected by the masses.

He pointed out that for renaming the NWFP as Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, an amendment was made to the Article 1 of the constitution of Pakistan while in the case of Gilgit-Baltistan the law was never touched. This shows the status of the package announced for Gilgit-Baltistan, he added.
Speaking at a press conference here, Agha said that in order to misappropriate the development funds, councils were formed at the village level soon after the elections 2009 in which hand picked and favorite people were included.
He said by making false promises the PPP claimed to have won the elections but failed to win the hearts of the masses in the region.
Looking at the tactics used during the elections, the people of the region are no more ready to believe what the ruling party is saying now. He said the funds of the Benazir income support program were also widely misused.
He demanded that the local bodies elections should be held without any further delay and if the government tried to delay the polls the doors of the apex court would be knocked.
