Islamabad, January 11: “Where are the revolutionary seasonal leaders of Hunza who had made pre – election promises of of living in Hunza and serving people of the region, without considering election results”?, a respondent asked during a survey conducted by Pamir Times to know feelings of youth of the region living in Islamabad. “Kamil Jan, Shehryar, Noor Mohammad and rest of the candidates are out of the scene”, back to business as usual, he said.
“Some of them are busy in political point scoring and traditional mud – slinging politics, which is humiliating and shameful for our region”, a twenty one years old student of Bahria University said.
“It is high time for all political, social and religious forces to unite for rehabilitation of the survivors of Attabad disaster”, a young resident of Hunza valley told this scribe, criticizing the role of certain political figures in the entire scenario.
“Ghazanfar was holding the highest political position in GB when the situation in Attabad came to surface”, a young student belonging to Gojal valley said, “but instead of relocating the people to a safer place despite of alarming reports shared by various governmental and non – governmental organizations, he was busy in conquering the Sost Dry Port”, he further criticized.
“What has the present government done for rehabilitation of the displaced people?”, another respondent. “Nothing, but fake promises and cosmetic relief operations”. He praised the local communities for being there to help their suffering brothers and sisters. “If it was not for the local communities, the situation would have transformed into a human crisis”, he said.
“The speaker, Wazir Baig, failed to attract media’s attention towards the tragedy”, a young professional working for an international NGO said.
