Gali firing victims await for compensation even after one and a half year

Jan questions seriousness of Govt, says claims proving hollow


Poonch, Jan 23 (KNS): National Conference today questioned seriousness of state as well as central government towards the border population terming delay in release of compensation of firing victims of Gali Saujiyan as a clear case of extending helping hand to cross border firing sufferers.
Youth National Conference Provincial President Ajaz Jan issued this statement after visiting the Gali Saujiyan area.
During his visit, local people including traders divulged that in cross border shelling one and a half year ago, more than two dozen shops in Gali market got reduced to ashes and several vehicles got burnt and they suffered losses to a high tune.
"After shelling and losses, many state government leaders visited the area and assured of providing compensation to us but till late, the assurance is yet to complete " locals informed.
In his statement, Jan castigated government for playing with the emotions of border sufferers.
"Government shouldn't have made such promise if they are not in a position to fulfil it " he said.
Jan said that traders and locals of Gali suffered major loss in Pak shelling one and a half year ago and many vehicles got burnt while around 29 shops got reduced to ashes but they are yet to be given any sort of compensation which reveals complete failure of government towards border tension.
He also alleged that on one side leadership of both PDP and BJP from top to bottom is making tall claims for bunker construction and on the other, work hasn't been started and people at large are losing their lives.
He asked state government to immediately intervene in the matter and to provide compensation to victims of Gali Saujiyan. (KNS)
