Human rights activist Amjad Ayub Mirza says PoK govt in exile will be formed if demands are not met by February 5

Human rights activist  Amjad Ayub Mirza has said political exiles living abroad will have no other option but to form a national government of PoK in exile if the demands of the people of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) and Gilgit-Baltistan are not met by February 5.

The humanitarian activist said it is not enough to reduce the taxes on electricity bills in POK or reduce the prices of wheat in Gilgit-Baltistan.

He asked the Pakistani government to withdraw its troops from PoK and PoGB.

The Tehreek-e Itefaq-e-Rai chairman was quoted as saying by ANI, “For eight months, the people of Pakistani-occupied Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan have been protesting, taking out protest rallies, and observing protest sit-ins against the increase in the tariff of electricity in POK and against the cuts and increase in the prices of wheat.”

“However, up till now, several sets of negotiations have taken place, but to no avail. The government of Pakistan and the puppet governments in Gilgit Baltistan and POK are not confirming that they are going to reverse the electricity tariff or the increase in the prices of wheat,” he added.

“And now for the first time in the history of POK, Joint Awami Action Committee has announced that on February 5, they will observe a people’s rights day. p till now, every year for the past 33 years, Pakistan has been observing Kashmir Solidarity Day on the February 5 which in actuality has been used to muster and gear up hatred towards India,” Mirza said.
