PM Imran Khan to visit Gilgit on Monday

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan will pay a day-long visit to Gilgit-Baltistan (GB) on Monday where he will announce a “historic” development package for the GB region.

The prime minister will visit GB on Monday and unveil a development package for the uplift of Gilgit-Baltistan which was approved by his federal government last month.

The premier gave go-ahead while chairing a meeting on Gilgit-Baltistan Integrated Development Plan.

Projects related to clean energy, transport and communication, health, infrastructure, water sanitation and tourism are part of the package.

PM Khan will also make an important statement regarding granting Gilgit-Baltistan the status of a provisional province of Pakistan.

Gilgit Baltistan Legislative Assembly last year had demanded an interim province status for the region from Pakistan’s federal government.
