According to a statement published in Daily Baad-e-Shimal (click to open link), the speaker of GBLA, Wazir Baig, has said that a well thought conspiracy plan is being used to malign the present government. He has also, reportedly, said that the boat service between Gojal and Hunza is flawless and those complaining in this regard are misleading the people. He has reportedly made these statements while talking to a delegation of the people of Gojal.
We request the speaker to focus on improving the service rather than making statements about imaginary conspiracy theories. Such statements are aimed at diverting attention from the real issues.
In my opinion the following flaws exist in the boat service;
- Water not only spills into the boat, it also seeps through the bottom
- The boats are not suitable for children, patients, senior citizens and women
- No system is in place to rescue the boat passengers, in case of an accident
Therefore I urge the speaker to expedite work on supply of modern, comfortable, boats for the stranded people of Gojal valley.
