ISLAMABAD: The residents of Sector H-13 and Union Council no. 45 have staged a protest on the Kashmir Highway against the lack of basic facilities in their area.

According to the residents, no official of the Capital Development Authority (CDA) has visited to resolve their issues and clean. They claimed the government has stopped installing new electricity metres in the area.
The protesting residents said they built their houses from their hard-earned pensions and savings but are still deprived of basic facilities. They urged minister Asad Umar to fulfill promises and resolve their issues.
