Akhoon for opening of Kargil-Skardu road
Jammu, Dec 16: Urging the need for removing man made barriers between the people living across Line of Control (LOC), the Minister for Consumers Affairs and Public Distribution (CA&PD) and Transport Qamar Ali Akhoon today asked the leadership of India and Pakistan to take the ongoing process of dialogue and reconciliation to its logical end so that all the issues are resolved amicably.
Interacting with a group of members of Gilgit-Baltistan Assembly led by Aamina Ansari accompanied by Anayatullah Khan Shumali, the minister said that the people of both sides are yearning for revival of trade and cultural bilateral relations which will begin an era of peace, development and prosperity in the region.
He also advocated for opening of Kargil-Skardu road on the pattern of Poonch-Chakan-da-Bagh and Uri-Muzaffarabad roads for trade and bilateral relations between the two sides of people, adding that the public representatives of Gilgit-Baltistan Assembly should pass a resolution in the legislature to impress upon the Pakistan government to remove restrictions through across the road.
On the occasion MLC, Aga Syed Ahmad Rizvi was also present.
