Islamabad, April 23: Marvi Momen has posted a “letter to the prime minister” of Pakistan urging him to look after the issues being faced by people of Gojal and Hunza valley as a result of the Attabad landslide disaster. “Effectees of this disaster will be joining a Long March if their demands are not met”, writes Marvi in the ‘letter to the prime minister’. She also writes that people of the Hunza valley are starting a ‘long march’ from 24-28 April and that she will be joining the Long March because her several requests have not been heard by the governments of Gilgit – Baltistan, as well as the federal government.
It is interesting to note that so far there is no news of any preparation in the region regarding a fresh long march related to the Attabad landslide disaster and issues of the local people. An earlier threat of a long march towards the Chinese border issued by the Mutaseerin-e-Gojal Raabta Committee had been called off after notification of calamity hit status for affected parts of the region was issued by the governor and chief minister of Gilgit – Baltistan.
