Hyder Abbas (Gilgit): The notification declaring Attabad Bala, Attabad Payeen, Sarat Bala, Sarat Payeen and Gojal (Upper Hunza) as calamity hit area has been issued. The summary was prepared by the Chief Secretary which was submitted to the Chief Minister who then forwarded it to the Governor and after the approval it is sent back to the Chief Minister.
Declaring the above mentioned areas of Hunza-Nagar District was one of the major demand of the people of Hunza, in a troubling situation after the Attabad Disaster. The Attabad Disaster has paralyzed almost half of the Hunza and damages innumerably.
The details of the notification have to be yet come, however, the major beneficiaries of the notification seems to be those who have taken loans from the banks.
