  1. Thank you ERC and Q.Z Kaira. It seems that a single window relief has now become a must. All the state-actors, CSOs and the local community relief providers’ mutually channelized coordination will save people and the institutions both. We also need to save the relief operations and services from corrupted hands.Things like medicine must not be distributed directly to the people.

  2. Buhot der ke meherban aate aate…. I hope he will also bring all the free media people with him to show the world how have the victims been suffering and how much is his government concern about them. I also assume our CM will also be there under his and the state protocol/protection due to the increasing rage against him among the locals.
    Keeping these emotional triggers aside, we are thankful to his response since the very first day of the incident. His order to mobilize the full capacity of the state machinery to deal with the situation was indeed very helpful. I am also hopeful he will consider beyond this point. What to do with the internally displaced people or IDPs now. Though the entire country is facing the IDP problem, even than he will order the concern authority to figure out the next step? More importantly, how to avoid such situation in future? How to minimize the causalities? Because not a single village of Hunza is immune to such catastrophe. I hope he will deal with such policy matters.
