Gulmit, May 17: There, apparently, is no end to the electricity crisis of Gojal valley. Constanly load shedding, un announced, is haunting life across the valley. While the chief executive visited Gojal, making a lot of promises, there hasn’t been any improvement in the aggrevating condition of electricity supply in the region.
Public cirlces have blasted the elected representatives for their ignorance of the ground realities of the valley. They have also criticized the NGOs for painting a rossy picture of the valley and, every now and then, calling it a “model of development”. This, they maintain, has been a major factor in decreasing the interest of government in the region.
The frustrated traders, shopkeepers and general public have demanded that the situation be improved immediately or they would come out on the streets and agitate against, what they call, the inept political leadership and their negligence.
