Islamabad: Nazir Sabir talking to GB TIMES stated that the well known mountaineer and politician from Hunza, stressed that the work on the debris that has blocked Hunza River should be speeded up on the war footing. He stated that FWO is involved in the process of releasing water from the lake which could be appreciated, however the pace of work is very slow, and delay which is putting the whole region of Hunza-Nagar, and Gilgit throughout the Indus River at high risk.
He further stressed on developing an early warning system for the information of people in case of the danger of out-burst of the water. He was of the opinion that in Hunza-Nagar District and Gilgit food items must be stored in huge quantities as the bridges on KKH and KKH itself will be destroyed with the flooding of lake water.
