Awami Action Committee to hold protest over surge in wheat prices in Pakistan's Gilgit-Baltistan on January 2

The Awami Action Committee hosted a Gilgit grand Jirga over the wheat price hike and also announced protest sit-ins in all districts of Pakistan from January 2, media reports said.

It reported that a grand Jirga was held in a local hotel in Gilgit on Sunday and was attended by central leaders, district officials of the Awami Committee, and social and political leaders, reported ANI.

The Member of Assembly Nawaz Khan Naji, Maulana Abdul Sami of Jamaat-e-Islami, Anjuman Imamia, Rah-e Haq Party’s Himayatullah, MWM also participated in the event.

On this occasion, participants expressed their views and said that there was no final discussion regarding wheat prices in the negotiations with the government.

The negotiations ended without any result, but the government falsely announced an increase in wheat prices, the news agency reported.

They said the increase in the price of wheat was a cruel decision.

The Awami Action Committee presented a 15-point charter of demand, including the price of wheat at 22 rupees per kg and providing 9 kg of wheat per person, repealing the Gilgit-Baltistan Finance Act, and abolition of all taxes, in the production of electricity, reported ANI.
