Residents in Muzaffarabad protest against Neelum-Jhelum project

Muzaffarabad (PoK), Oct 02: Anger against the local government and Islamabad has snowballed into a simmering outrage in Muzaffarabad city of Pakistan occupied Kashmir. The locals, who are now deprived of the even basic need of water, are compelled to take to the streets against the mounting discrimination.

Recently, in an attempt to register their dissent, which cropped up after the construction of the Neelum- Jhelum hydropower dam, the locals led by the traders and activists carried out protests and a shutter down strike against the administration, which has by and large acted against the interest of the common people. Demonstrations, strikes, and protests have, however, become a part of PoK political arena; it has been unsuccessful at forging anything concrete for the people of the region.
