Gilgit, June 13: We will bulldoze the structures created for construction of Diamer Dam if compensation is not paid. The district government is creating hurdles for payment of compensation.

This was said by elders of Thor Valley (Chilas) at a press conference in Gilgit.

The villagers had walked up to Gilgit city, 150km apart, to register their protest. They accused the district administration of depriving 30,000 people of 1.5 billion rupees through ‘deception and cheating’.

  1. I am not understanding why the govt of pakistan is trying to use our resources with out our consent. before using our resources they should ask the people of diamar in general and and the people of GilGit-Batistan in particuler.Before using our resources they should give the basic rights to the people of Gilgit-baltistan as they have been deprived from since their independance.
