They criticized the WAPDA high-ups for appointing non-locals against the posts of non-technical posts of lower grades in the under construction Golen Gole Hydropower Project where hundreds of people were affected in one way or the other and many of them were rendered homeless.

The criticized WAPDA for passing the high tension cables of the transmission line of Golen Gole project over the thickly populated Koghuzi village including a government-run girls high school which exposed them to perennial danger of their lives while the alignment can be diverted to nearby barren lands.

The Koh residents complained that no compensation was being paid to them for the lands acquired for erection of the tower poles which was a sheer injitustice with them.
