Speaker Balochistan Assembly Muhammad Aslam Bhootani while strongly condemning expulsion of locals from Hub and Gadani to acquire land for DG Khan cement factory has urged the Revenue Department to stop this practice.
He said that under the Land Revenue Act through any land could be acquired for an important government building but forced expulsion of people from their land was an injustice to them. Speaker said that this process was initiated a year before and I raised voice against this but due to non-cooperation of the concerned higher authorities no notice was taken of my protest, as they turned deaf ears to my protest.
Aslam Bhootani said that this injustice would not be allowed at all.
He also urged the owner of DG Khan Cement Factory not to launch their project until and unless reservations of local people are removed and any law and order situation may not be created.
The Speaker said that providing security to industrialists in Lasbella is our responsibility. He however said that it was also my responsibility to raise voice for the rights of the people of the area.
He said that the concerned authorities of Government of Balochistan have been informed about this and he will himself pay a visit to the proposed site plan of DG Khan Cement Factory on May 2.
