SKARDU: Chairman Gilgit-Baltistan Democratic Alliance Ghulam Shezad Agha has said his party would fully support the announcement of Kargil-Ladakh refugees to cross the Line of Control if the government failed to facilitate them in meeting their near and dear ones across the border.
Speaking at a press conference, he said for the last over six decades successive governments in Pakistan had been hoodwinking the masses of the region and keeping them deprived of their basic rights.
He said the government would not be allowed to carry out the disputed Basha dam project in the region.
About Sadpara dam, he said further injustices with the labourers would not be tolerated. He condemned the harassment of the workers at the hands of a project manager and said the detained workers should be released forthwith.
He also condemned `unbecoming` behavior of secretary health with Haji Mohammad Nashad and said instead of resolving the issue of shortage of lady doctors at the district headquarters hospital in Skardu, the health department official had misbehaved with a public figure.
He demanded that all missing health facilities should be provided in the health centres of the region.
