Wahdat News (Gilgit) Three-day CPEC conference was held just to mislead people of Gilgit-Baltistan. The purpose of organizing this conference was to take input from people of Gilgit-Baltistan, but by inviting only the representatives and elite in the conference, organizers tried to impose their own agenda. Neither government representatives nor opposition members were allowed to give their suggestions and clear their stance on CPEC.
Leader of Majlis Wahdat Muslimeen women wing and member assembly Bibi Saleema said that share of Gilgit-Baltistan in the mega project of CPEC and constiutional status of Gilgit-Baltistan were not discussed in this three-day seminar on CPEC. People of Gilgit-Baltistan want their identity more than the benefits of CPEC. Identity of people of this region has been erased for seventy years. People of Gilgit-Baltistan are disappointed with the contradictory statements of federal ministers. Love with which people of this region chose Pakistan, this love and sincerity was wasted during these seventy years.
She said that audience was allowed to ask question but when they asked questions then no satisfactory answers were given. Federal ministers left the seminar without answering any question. Their answers are behind the questions Some speakers They praised people of this region just to wrench their hearts, whereas people of this region are not dependent on someone’s praise. People of this region demand their rights but in return they get their praise.
She said that only the projects which were included in the PSDP were mentioned in the CPEC conference, whereas these projects have no link with CPEC. She said that people of Gilgit-Baltistan are demanding their share in this corridor. Only make us partner in the CPEC, we will make our own projects.
She further said that demands of Awami Action Committee are legal and judicious. Registering cases of treason and revolt is excesses of government and by such acts government is sowing the seeds of hatred in the hearts of people of Gilgit-Baltistan. Arrested leaders of Awami action Committee should be immediately released. This is good for the government.
