ISLAMABAD : Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Wednesday demanded resignation of Chief Minister Gilgit-Baltistan Hafiz Hafeezur Rehman over the prolonged protests of the people of area for imposition of undue taxes .
PTI Spokesperson Fawad Chaudhry in a statement said that the people of GB were protesting on roads since December 21 but the chief minister GB had failed to address their grievances. He said that people belonging to 10 districts of G-B were marching towards Gilgit in the extreme weather but the government of the region was showing indifferent attitude towards them.
Fawad Chaudhry said that G-B was an integral part of the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) Project and the government was making the situation complex for unknown reasons. He said that business activity in the area had almost gone to zero level due to the non-seriousness of the government while chief minister used to spend most of his time in Islamabad. He said that federal and the G-B governments should get out of deep slumber, hear to the demands of the people and solve the problem most effectively.
