Organized under the banner of the “Save Neelum Movement,” the protest saw significant participation from locals who are demanding two critical facilities: a hospital in Grees Valley and the completion of the Hydropower Project in Phulawai. Representatives from various political parties joined forces to press the Azad Kashmir government for immediate action.

The demonstrators emphasized the urgent need for a 20-bed hospital equipped with all necessary amenities in Grees Valley and urged the authorities to expedite the completion of the Hydropower Project in Phulawai, which is already in the final stages of construction.

Addressing the protesters, organizers warned that if the government fails to address their demands promptly, they would escalate their agitation to the next level, including a sit-in at Kel. Furthermore, they announced plans to stage a protest in front of the Muzaffarabad Press Club in the near future.

Amidst chants and slogans, the protesters expressed their frustration with the lack of basic healthcare facilities and infrastructure development in the region. The situation in Grees Valley and surrounding areas remains dire, with residents determined to continue their struggle until their demands are met.

Sardar Ourngzeb, representing the people of Neelum Valley, reiterated the community’s resolve to fight for their rights. The protest in Neelum Valley serves as a stark reminder of the pressing need for improved healthcare access and infrastructure development in remote areas of Azad Kashmir.
