The people here are not getting any kind of realty which is a complete abuse. During the previous regime, the rights and royalty of Attock were discussed in the National Assembly and the federal cabinet and the cabinet approved, but still Attock was deprived of its royalty. That the people of Attock will be given their right. If the Attock case is won, a new era of prosperity will begin in Attock. Despite giving so much to the country, the district of Attock is a backward district, now it will not be kept silent but will get this right together with the people of Attock, full justice is expected from the High Court. Attock district is providing gas, electricity and oil to the whole of Pakistan, but the people here have not been provided with relief. The people of KPK had given land for Brotha canal hey are being given their right. We have decided to go to the High Court for the rights of Attock after seeing the backwardness of Attock district. It is not our problem but the problem of the entire Attock. Gas was discovered in Pindi region, which is benefiting Pakistan, but 33 villages here are still deprived of facilities like needle gas as per the constitution.
