Residents of the Minyeh-Dinnieh qada will take to the streets if development projects for the impoverished northern area have not been approved within a month, MPs for the district said Tuesday.Many residents of Akkar, which is adjacent to Minyeh-Dinnieh, have voiced their opposition to the establishment of the landfill, arguing that despite the need for development projects, the state only thought of them when seeking a solution to the garbage crisis.In the memo delivered to Salam, the Minyeh-Dinnieh lawmakers complained that no money had been allocated to the qada from a $503 million development plan approved by Salam's government.They said that recent decisions to implement development projects in Akkar and the Bekaa Valley have also ignored Minyeh-Dinnieh.
