The joint meeting of the core committee and advisory council of Awami Action Committee in Pakistan occupied Gilgit-Baltistan vehemently rejected the newly proposed wheat prices set at Rs. 3600 per sack by the occupying government.

The committee decided to escalate the movement across Pakistan occupied Gilgit-Baltistan, aiming to intensify their stance against the occupying government’s decision. Additionally, they announced their support for a sit-in organized by the action committee in Skardu from December 26 onwards.

Kashmiris in the region are fervently demanding a rollback to the earlier wheat prices of Rs. 2200. For over seven months, the people of Pakistan-occupied Gilgit Baltistan (POGB) have been protesting against the substantial hike in wheat prices. Multiple demonstrations, including complete shutdowns and protest rallies, have been held. However, the Pakistani establishment and it’s puppet occupying government in POGB, have failed to address their concerns. Instead, they are formulating policies that undermine the rights of the native Kashmiris.
