PESHAWAR: The Corridor Front, a body opposing the current route of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, has announced to stage protest against the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf-led government after accusing it of having failed to protect the rights of the Pakhtuns.

Addressing a news conference here on Wednesday, Dr Said Alam Mehsud and Farid Khan Toofan said the provincial government was unaware of the award of its 120 kilometer land from Thakot to Havelian.

They said the provincial government had repeatedly denied imposing Section 4 for land acquisition but the section had already been imposed. If the provincial government was unaware of it, it should be considered as its inability and if it was aware, it is tantamount to the sale out of Pakhtun rights.

The Corridor Front leaders asked the provincial government to lift the Section-4 or else it would be considered the enemies of the Pakhtuns.
