Political & Socio-Economic Empowerment of Gilgit Baltistan
Imran Khan and his team from PTI (Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf) promised us:
PTI recognises the commitment of the people of Gilgit Baltistan (GB) to Pakistan, which has been exemplary and is reflected in their sacrifices. We will ensure that the people of GB get their due political and economic rights.
Gilgit Baltistan suffers from a myriad issues, ranging from lack of economic development, underrepresentation in CPEC and a centralised bureaucracy coupled with an already disempowered legislative assembly. These issues have suppressed GBs ability to capitalise on its potential and natural endowment.
We will empower people of GB by giving autonomy to the legislative assembly.
We will boost local economy with strategic investments in tourism, minerals and renewable energy.
We will provide GB with solid opportunities in CPEC and ensure local participation.
