Chilas (Monitoring Desk): Mutahida Qumi Movement (MQM) Chilas interrupted the on going activities of of building the Model Village at the site of Diamer-Bahsha Dame. The local leaders of MQM are of the opinion that where as 70% people have been displaced from the area it will serve as a touring point for the elite and poor people of the area will not be able to get their rights.
They have also marked the vast barren land with stones a symbolic takeover from Govt. They were of the view that the promises made by chief secretary remained unfulfilled. The initially a small number of people who had intrupted the work on Model Village turned into a mob within a short period of time and the local leaders of the MQM also addressed the gathering.
