AKRSP accused of misusing funds

By Our Correspondent
Gilgit: The Aga Khan Rural Support Programme (AKRSP) was given millions of rupees to raise political awareness in Gilgit-Baltistan but it failed to do any tangible work in this regard, sources said. A proposal was submitted to an international donor agency to work towards political awareness among the masses in Gilgit-Baltisan which was accepted by the agency. The agency granted millions of rupees to the AKRSP some two years back. This grant was however allegedly misused by AKRSP officials who took no serious steps towards the particular cause except training some members of union and district councils and printing some pamphlets. Selected people (who are considered to be close to the officials) were made to visit certain areas while deprivation and miseries of the people remained unresolved. The local political leaders and activists of civil society have demanded an inquiry into the allegations and accountability of the officials for bringing a bad name to the organisation
