Aziz underlines three major reasons that have kept Hunza valley and Gilgit – Baltistan deprived of development despite of immense natural resources and human potential. In his analysis the major three reasons are:

  • Political leaders too often function without any concrete development agenda, concentrating more on rhetoric than planning and research.
  • Annual Development Funds are used by the political leaders to compensate their election investments, or to benefit their near and dear ones.
  • The leaders are self centered and lack honesty, good will and devotion for the cause of society.

He says that if the developmental funds are truly invested on the society, there’s no reason why the region can’t overcome most of its hurdles.

He promises to devote all his “energies, expertise and experience for development of the society” and he would make Hunza an exemplary place to live in”.

Salient points of his election manifesto are:

  1. most welcome Aziz bai, the only qualified and real nominee among all in current roll of candidates. We were expecting you early, but you came so late any ways best of luck. Hunza requires such an efficient and intelligent person to lead them,Aziz bai try your luck in GBLA, if succeeded good ;if not then you must contest in District election.
    all the best

    1. We well come new and energtic condidates so keep it up but aziz bhai u r realy very late you have to prepare yourself for future good luck for now




  3. Dear sir I really appreciate your participation in elections. if not this time, some time in future you will succeed because you have a vision to lead you. i Wish you God speed and i second the idea of javed posh of contesting district elections as well..Good Luck.

  4. Dear Aziz,

    Nice to hear you. I am shure ur home work is complete. This is not matter of success always which counts but, the work and points is assurance for the educated people of SHINAKI, KHUNJUT & GOJAL.

    Further, We want to hear from YOU-The human resource Management or team formation because, if u have a team of people who identifies the problems on every village basis and provide an oppertunity to only set the prioritise with in that scattered ideas will be a complete hit on the main target.

    I am really appriciating the points u highlighted through this media. They are worth to read. But still a bit faraway from the main crux. I know YOU have the potential and YOU can be a person of Change in the seneraio of HUNZA. If the people of Hunza proved that they are educated and they believe on merit.

    One of the main points YOU highlighted to us, is an independent candidate as a few days before highlighted what is the benefits of the political parties-from GB except capturing of the financial and natural resources of GB. We have to devise our own parties whom have root from GB.

    The actual extract has very clearly highlighted by the editor of PT. My special salam to the team of HT &PT and I personally hope they will provide a bridge to fill the gaps as that has been created by some individuals for their own gains and benieits.

    My sweet wishes are with all of them-whom thinks for the people of Hunza out the box-who is above the caste creed, lingual and geographical lines and demarkations.

  5. Aziz is a potential young energetic chap with enlightened views. I can see in him the qualities to lead GB on national level. So, my personal appeal from the people of Hunza:
    vote for Aziz Ahmed.

  6. Best of luck Mr. Aziz

    What the most is needed, that stay and see hoe much people trust you. give a chance to Gojal people to understand you. donot hide yourself behind the Pakstani pland parties. they are not here for you but are here for them self.
    Just give the people a chance you not any party. we ahve them around for many years.

    Bst of luck be your self

  7. this is write step taken by aziz.we need educated ,young,and well known depends on youth to convenience the people to utilities to their precious volts.

  8. Aziz is an enlightened, energetic, educated and down to earth person. He posses excellent leadership qualities.He is the best to represent Hunza at every forum. But his qualities do not chime with the perverted values of society. People of hunza tend to see value in monetary, tribal and linguistic terms. Since Aziz is not approved of these things, the society makes him misfit. It would have been better for him to do little bit homework before running for elections.However, my best wishes are with Aziz.

  9. Good luck, but please dont step down for any party that Arif Hussain did, he came with very dynamic and holistic approach , enforced by people of Hunza and lastly nothing. But this time dont disappoint the educated youth to come forward.

    Hip hip hurray from Saudia …..


  16. You are really the hope of our future, I know you have the qualities of a good leader. I doubt that people of Hunza may not vote for you as they can not come out of their traditional tribal thinking no matter what they claim. and this should not bother you, if you have decided to be in practical politics then you have to go through all these.

    I am sure the people of Gojal, fortunately do not think on these lines and would be voting for you and I am hopeful that in future there are chances that people will come out of their shells (families, tribes and Kuces) and start to think broadly if they want a respectable political future for Hunza.

    I wish you all the best.

    Sher Karim

  17. dear sir
    nice to read ur manifesto ,whethera person is from hunza or gojal we should respect a qualified person like mr aziz ,inshallah ppl will support u i u dont quit frm race ,May Allah succeed u /we proud of educated ppl like u

  18. No doubt Mr. Aziz is an educated and experienced candidate , representing the youth ..His profile and manifesto reflects his approach…it seems that he wants to replicate the development model of AKRSP and other NGOs.. the participatory approach by involving the people in development projects / schemes. Planning and research before and during the implementation of development projects.. This would be a new trend in politics … but unfortunately in politics other factors are more responsible to attract voters..I.e. party affiliations, money, family and tribes affiliations, ethnic differences etc . that’s why the tactics matters during political campaigns… anyhow it will take time but one day the youth will bring change. Best of Luck
