  2. I strongly agree with the comment at No1 by Mr. Mahmood Ali. However, better late than never, the CM should now earnestly make efforts to resettle the affectees some where else away from the disaster affected area. Provision of tents and other make shift arrangements are temporary relief measures. Time has come for permanent to the problems of calamity affected people.The Government of G-B should resettle these at alternative location as the area is not safe for human habitation.

  8. Mr CM was visiting down country. it seems that people of karachi and Lahore elected him. even he visited Mela in Lahore. the poor mentality of CM is unfortunate for the people of GIlgit Baltistan.
