“Lake – Water Bomb headed South”, Marvi Memon

Monitoring Desk

Gilgit, May 09: MNA Marvi Memon seems visibly distressed after visiting the disaster hit parts of Gojal valley today. Writing on her twitter account the PML member of national assembly says that PPP has failed to implement the recommendations made by the national assembly back in January. “Why had they nt taken china’s help wch cld hav saved this water bomb n mnths of suffering for cut off population”, she writes on her twitter account.

“Why had none of the other dozen recomendations on compensation etc nt been done either” she further writes in SMS language generally used on twitter and other instant messaging services. She also reports the affected people complaining while standing near the lake.

Marvi also blasts FWO personnel for still coming up with “Sub acha hai” reports. The MNA also says on her twitter account that she is writing an article for a leading Urdu newspaper on the situation in Gojal valley.

She says that the disaster has grown into “a 300 ft deep lake-water bomb headed south”, due to inability of the government to act rapidly for draining the lake.
