However, Syeda Sadia Danish, advisor to Chief Minister of Giglit-Baltistan for Tourism stated that the most of the issues surrounded by the controversy have been amicably resolved between the Govt. of Gilgit-Baltistan and KPK. Therefore, 4 Polo teams of Gilgit-Baltistan will participate in the festival as well as the arrangements of the festival will be made jointly by the administration of Gilgit-Baltistan and KPK. She further stated that previously only Chief Secretary of Gilgit-Baltistan was making the arrangements on his own but this time the elected representatives have the charge of the preparations and it is a big achievement. Sadia stated that to resolve the matter Chief Minister Mehdi Shah has played a Vitol role.
Talking to journalist Sadia has stated that the people’s government is working hard to provide relief and satisfy the needs of the people of Gilgit-Baltistan, we have never been ignorant and slow in doing so. She further stated that I will not left any stone unturned to resolve to promote nationally and international the beautiful image of Gilgit-Baltistan. We have got our identity as Gilgit-Baltistan and are trying to shun out the previous image as Northern Areas of Pakistan.
