  1. The political tycoons of the area are cherishing the recent packages announced for Gilgit Baltistan, but none of the common people did. The Legislative Council, as I call it because just changing and modifying Names valves void to me, is rendering a amphitheatre where ONE of the termites on the people’s resources has to turn “Gladiator”
    Had been these people sincere and selfless to the area, they would strongly demanded the constitutional rights for the poor people of the neglected region. They are euphoric over getting flagged cars and a lot of Black money to maintain their riches.
    Common man still suffers and strives to earn a livelihood and has hundreds of concerns to look after then to take part in these fake ELECTIONS.
