Islamabad, October 6: The stage seems to be set, as far as the former Chief Executive of Gilgit Baltistan, is concerned. “I am experienced enough to become the governor of Gilgit – Baltistan. People belonging to all religious sects living in the region respect me for my spotless and scandal free past”, these views were expressed by the former chief executive in an interview.
He said that while he himself is eyeing the position of governor, his “able, politically astute and energetic” son, Shehryar, would be contesting the upcoming election of Gilgit – Baltistan Legislative Assembly from ward 6, Hunza. He hoped that people of Hunza valley would vote for Shehryar and elect him with overwhelming majority.
He did not envisage a role for his wife, Attiqa Ghazanfar, and his other son, Saleem Khan, in the future setup. Let’s remind the readers that these four have submitted nomination papers for the GBLA 2009 election, along with 25 others belonging to Hunza valley
Shehryar Khan, a banker by profession and experience, is not a very well known figure in Hunza valley, having spent most of his life in Islamabad, working for a banking corporation. What prospects does Shehryar have in the political future of Hunza only time could tell!
