HUNZA, Jan 26: “The news published regarding me on PT is highly discouraging and unbearable because being a son of the soil I am trying my level best to facilitate the local community”, said the young Assistant Commissioner Muhammad Usman while talking to PT on telephone. He was responding to a news item published on PT earlier today. “Till today none of my friends or family members visited me in Gulmit as I am myself living in a single room of Chinese Camp”, he further said.
“I was flying to Gilgit on the same day and on the request of the pilots four people from Gojal volunteered to give space for an elder women patient with three others with whom I don’t had any relationship”, he explained. “As sympathy I paid the four volunteers 100 rupees each from my pocket so that they would not bear the burden of the ticket from Aliabad to Gilgit”, he added.
Meanwhile talking to PT, the representatives of the relief committees in Gojal highly applauded the role of the AC. “He extends all possible support to the committee and facilitates the local community”, they said. As a generosity he also donated Rs 2,000 to the local Scouts the other day to appreciate and encourage them, they said.
The committee appealed the local community to avoid unnecessary travelling and creating problems for the responsible organisation in the disaster situation.
