[News] Gilgit-Baltistan Council is like a sword on the neck of Gilgit-Baltistan Assembly- Hafeez Hafiz-ur-Rehman

Gilgit (Ulfat Ara):  Hafeez Hafiz-ur-Rehman, the president of Pakistan Muslim League (N) Gilgit-Baltistan Chapter stated that it is a good step that Syed Mehdi Shah the Chief Minister of Gilgit-Baltistan is meeting with the Kashmiri Leaders. We were in favor of closer contacts with the people of Kashmir, but it was the PPP, who wants to develop Gilgit-Baltistan as the 5th province of Pakistan. There are contradictions in the sayings and doings of PPP as at one hand Syed Mehdi Shah has stated on several occasion that there is no relationship of Kashmir with Gilgit-Baltistan but the PPP’s Prime Minister Syed Gilani is stating that Gilgit-Baltistan is part of Kashmir.

It is important that PPP should not give just emotional statements and work properly with honesty. If PPP wants to make Gilgit-Baltistan the fifth province of Pakistan than PPP’s government should immediately made amendments in the constitution of Pakistan and make Gilgit-Baltistan as its fifth province without considering that what will happen to the Kashmir.

He further stated that the Gilgit-Baltistan Council is like a sward on the neck of Gilgit-Baltistan Assembly. When the council will start to function the elected assembly will be just a rubber stamp. We should learn from the experience of the AJK Council which has become handicapped under the AJK Council.  The AJK Assembly is going to start an anti AJK council, movement soon. So that before starting the functioning of Gilgit-Baltistan Council, immediate actions should be taken by the Gilgit-Baltistan government to remove the Council. Otherwise people will forget that the discrepancies of the Kahsmir and Northern Areas Affairs (KANA) under the discrepancies to be come through the Gilgit-Baltistan Council.

    Hafeez is looking confused, he should look ahead to work on what is right and what is wrong. Mehdi shah should take into confidence people of Gilgit-Baltistan before talking to Kashmiris.

    Hafeez is right Gilgit-Baltistan Council a non democratic body is like a sword on the neck of elected Gilgit-Baltistan Legislative Assembly. Gilgit-Baltistan Council must be stoped.

    I think Gilgit Baltistan should be given fifth province status as soon as possible. As it is their right to be consider as a Pakistan fifth pillar and also provide them all available resources to develop the area and expose the natural beauty of the region.

    nice saying by hafeezur rehman i accept v r the part of kashmir


    Well, all this is an eye wash so far as reforms package is concern, in fact legally and consitutionally G.B.is not part of Pakistan, since no amendment in constitution is made. Under the consitution territories of Pakistan has been shown but no where there is any word about Gilgit Baltistan or formerly known Northern Areas. We still govern through a remote control which is being used from Islamabad by the people who do not belong to Gilgit Baltistan. If the govt is sincere with the people of G.B. then why they habitually getting U turns to implement the verdict of Supreme Court of Pakistan…? It is on record that every successive govt. have adopted double standard towards GB. However credit goes to the present govt. atleast they removed the dust from the file of Northern Areas and atleast suggested a name i.e. Gilgit Baltistan. It is very irorny to note that all the awards and laws of the land are being applied to the G.B. even the highest military award like NISHAN-E-HYDER has been given to Shaheed Lakik Jan, under the consitution but if Shaheen Jan’s Son files any Petition Under article 199 of the Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan, his petition is outrightly be dismissed for want of constitution jurisdiction, because we do not come under jurisdiction of Consitution of Pakistan….. is this not a game being played with the innocent people of Gilgit Baltistan…..?

    Yet another example is the head of Supreme Appellate Court’s Chairman, who is non local, is there no one having required qualification and standing at the Bar…. there are but the apathy of the govt is there, because judiciary in G.B. is still in the grip of administration who prefer to chose their near and dears rather to make appointments in accordance with merit as such merit is being killed in G.B.
