Hunza, September 18: A protest public rally called by the All Hunza Action Committee attracted hudnreds of people from the Shinaki belt, demanding additional constituency for Hunza valley in the Gilgit – Baltistan Legislative Assembly.
Speakers highlighted the issues faced by people of Hunza valley due to under – representation in democratic bodies in the face of increased population. They demanded additional general seat for they valley, on urgent basis. Critics have termed the current announcement by the interim governor for two reserved seats as a delaying tactic.
Let’s remind the readers that Attiqa Ghazanfar held a reserved seat, during the previous government, apart from the general seat won by her husband, Ghanzafar Ali Khan. No major issue of the region was resolved during this period, despite of the increased representation.
On this occasion leaders of the action committee announced that the next rally would be held in Karimabad, on September 25.
