ISLAMABAD - Disappointed by the government indifference to their demands the leadership of Suba Hazara Tehreek (SHT) after detailed consultation at the forum of the Supreme Council of the Tehreek decided to go for mass mobilisation campaign for securing status of province for Hazara division. Sharing the decisions of the Supreme Council of the Tehreek in a press conference here on Saturday, Tehreek chairman Sardar Mohammad Yousuf said that after thorough discussion it was unanimously decided by the 100-member Supreme Council that instead of depending upon the government which had not taken even a single step towards their demands, they should go for mass mobilisation and agitation programme in phases. Flanked by central leaders of the Tehreek including Amanullah Khan Jadoon, Umar Ayub, Yousuf Ayub, Sardar Yaqoob and Sajjad Qamar, Sardar Mohammad Yousuf said that in first phase they would go for mass mobilisation campaign and would go to the people in all parts of Hazara Division. Elaborating he said that they would start their mass contact campaign from Kohistan District on Dec. 8 and after holding series of public gatherings and corner meetings in Batagram, Torgah, Manshera, Abbottabad would culminate the first phase of contact with the people at Haripur by Dec. 21. In second phase they would launch long march from Karachi to Rawalpindi in first week of January while in third and final phase they would stage demonstrations and sit-in in all parts of Hazara Division and would block Karakuram Highway. Responding to a question he said that they were promised by the PPP-lead coalition government that they were not only serious in giving the status of province to Hazara but would also go to convert southern Punjab into a Seraiki Province but all the claims and promises of the government seemed hollow as no concrete step was so far taken by the government in this connection. To another question he said that a couple of months back they had organized a seminar and called the people from various parts of the country who were demanding the status of province for their areas and in the light of the discussion they had prepared a detailed report on the viability of the new provinces and submitted it to the government but there was complete silence on the subject. To a question Sardar Mohammad Yousuf dispelled the impression that the formation of new provinces would be on ethnic grounds and said that they were demand of new provinces came on the ground that the big provinces had failed to cater for the demands of the people in the far-flung areas of the provinces hence fuming the sense of deprivation. He further said that the creation of new provinces would not only help in better management of these areas but it would also bring in harmony and peace in the whole country.
