Passu – The people of Gojal are still deprived of some of the most basic human needs. Lanterns flickr in hundreds of home across Gojal as the chilly cold winter wind thunders outside. A turbine at the Khyber Hyrdro – Power Plant had malfunctioned months ago and is still rotting in the NAHWO factory in Gilgit city.
Protests from the local population don’t find any hearing within the government circles. This is one of the toughest winter seasons Gojal has ever witnessed and the government has failed miserably in providing any relief to the people. As if doubling the troubles of the people, light, after the heat has also been snatched.
It is time for the local political leadership to rise on behalf of the people and ensure provision of light and heat for them.
