    We the people of Hunza are thankful to the brothers and friends in China who at all crucial times have helped the people of Gilgit-Baltistan unconditionally. However, it is a matter of worry that why the Chief Minister of Gilgit-Baltistan have not taken immediate step along with the Speaker of Gilgit-Baltistan assembly, and a governor who is non-representaive and non local is being so much dependent upon.

    If the Chief Minister, Syed Mehdi Shah worked on to provide relief for affected people of disaster heat area instead of his touring business with the women workers of Pakistan Peoples Party in Lahore many people’s homes could have been saved.

    People of Hunza should work hard and fast to get the relief done immediately, including passage of water from the lake and opening the KKH.
