Massive protest held in PoK against Pak over load shedding, human rights violations
A massive protest rally was held in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir's Dadyal city against the load shedding and human rights violations committed by Pakistan in the region.
The rally attended by thousands of protesters was called by Sada-e-Haq (Voice of Rights) Party who has accused Islamabad for regular power cuts, high tariffs, corruption and police brutality against civil rights campaigners.
They accused Pakistan Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA), a government-owned public utility maintaining power and water in Pakistan, for irregular supply of power in PoK.
The crowd chanted slogans in favour of Iftikhar Sadiqi and asked him to move forward to fight against the corrupt Pakistani officials in PoK.
The protesters said that the electricity produced from the resources of PoK is to be given to them only and not to Pakistani provinces.
They also condemned the arrest and torture of Tanveer Ahmed, a journalist and activist arrested after he removed Pakistan's flag from a popular public place in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) on August 21.
