A massive protest along with a torch rally was held in Muzaffarabad of Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) on Monday night.

The protest was against mega dams to be constructed by Chinese companies.

It was organised by 'Darya Bachao, Muzaffarabad Bachao' (Save River, Save Muzaffarabad) committee.

Protesters chanted slogans like 'Neelum-Jhelum behne do, humein zinda rehne do' (let the Neelum and Jhelum rivers flow, let us live).

The rally was attended by Muzaffarabad residents and people from other parts of PoK.

People in PoK have continuously been protesting against the construction of dams. Recently, Pakistan and China signed agreements for construction of dams on Neelum-Jhelum River.

Pakistan and China are jointly plundering natural resources of PoK and Gilgit Baltistan.
