  1. Very positive gesture has been taken by our seniors and youths living in Gilgit as three weeks has been passed the government has failed to take any concrete step to release the water from the artificial lake except distributing few bags of wheat to the disaster effected dwellers and the local government has totally failed to bring the particular matter to national and international level As regularly the water level is increasing and has already started effecting the properties of the peoples and I don’t know for how long the government will keep the people in daze.
    Yes now it is the responsibilities of the people of Gojal living in different cities of the country particularly in Gilgit Islamabad and Karachi to come together to persuade the government for immediate actions.

  2. We were sleeping for almost 3 weeks and the Govt made false claims as usual to release the incidental Lake within six days (Kaira before press) We were expecting much from the Govt. it claims to be the representative of the people and working for the people, we remained complacent towards the impact of this unfortunate mudflow from Attabad.Photo sessions were repeatedly done by Governor GB as well Manzoor Watto in Altit and Gulmit.We never thought about the destruction of sweet homes at Ayeenabad Gojal which is still moving toward Shishkat and Gulmit.How calm and innocent we are and not protesting our justified demands before Zardari and Gillani as well the champion chief justice of Pakistan. We expect much from AKDN and volunteers that is fine but can they release the artificial lake? which is devastating the beautiful valley of Gojal.
    Please be clear about your agenda and go the the top leadership Pakistan with Wazir and Mutabiat Shah and if possible write to the ambassador of EU and USA.Where is the time tested friend China who has a great strategic interest through KKH
