Sami Khan (Gilgit): The president of Pakistan Mr. Asif Ali Zardari appointed a well known development professional Mr. Shoaib Sultan Khan as the first chairman of the Senate of the Karakorum International University (KIU). The Senate would comprise of 12 members and Registrar would serve as the secretary.
However, in the educated and political circle the appointment of Chairman has been taken critically, because Mr. Asif Ali Zaradari has ignored many suitable candidates hailing from Gilgit-Baltistan for the position of the Chairman Senate. It is to be remembered that the Vice Chancellor of the only University of Gilgit-Baltistan does also belongs to the Punjab. The way both heads the administrative and policy are non locals.
The appointments of the non local heads of all crucial public sector (Govt.) institutions of Gilgit-Baltistan is been seen as a political controlling mechanism by the successive governments in Pakistan for the resources of Gilgit-Baltistan.
