The members of the JKLF, Jammu Kashmir National Awami Party (JKNAP
) and Transport Union, together carried out a sit-in protest outside the District Collector's office situated in Rawalkot City.
The protesters, who were carrying banners with pictures of Naeem Butt, called for the withdrawal of false cases filed against political organisations, including the Jammu Kashmir National Awami Party (JKNAP
) and to suspend district management officers.
The protest was organised by the Jammu Kashmir National Awami Party (JKNAP), which claimed that the PoK produces some 5,000 mega watts of electricity from five dams and 4500 Megawatts of that electricity is diverted to the Islamabad grid leaving the local people with just 500 Megawatts.
Sardar Liaqat Hayat, President of JKNAP, said, "We people are paying hefty bills despite having hours long load shedding.
The Jammu Kashmir Awami National Party (JKNAP) and the National Students Federation (NSF) on Thursday raised anti-Pakistan slogans in support of the residents of Gilgit-Baltistan, and demanded the release of Baba Jan, Husnain Karmal and others.
Earlier, JKNAP president Liaqat Hayat, while addressing the gathering at the Rawalakot Chowk, urged Pakistan to abolish military courts as they are being misused to target political activists.
