people of Hunza considered the generous donation to be a goodwill gesture from the Chinese friends and brothers. However the public representatives have criticized the action of Masood Khan, Pakistan’s Ambassador in China for bypassing the Chief Secretary of Gilgit-Baltistan and trying to pass the funds through Chief Secretary. Many observers are of the view that it is a gross violation of protocols and procedure of business between the two countries regarding initiatives of public good.
