  2. Dear MR Mirza ALI and DIDAR ALI
    you are once again taking wrong decision NAZIR SABIR could be a good CLIMBER but being a politician he is zero he is one of those ediots who enjoyed the situation when GOJAL was going under water in Islamabad with gernal FAROOQ
    he played a very negative role in the current situation i totally dis agree with u for this decison

  3. I agree with Imran. Nazir Sabir has no sympathy for the people of Hunza or GB, but for the establishment and his cronies. He spent his time and efforts making happy the NDMA chief during the disaster instead of joining with the people.

  4. @ imran
    Be positive,

    Nazir Sabir is deserving person to be a Governor, I don’t think so there is any other person can face Information desk, media properly, Even you people can watch & listen our C.M speech and his answers , you can judge him yourself we don’t need like that people who can’t talk & reply properly.
    Should be there person with working expertise, who can talk and answer, May be Shigri is better than Nazir Sabir.

  5. @Nadeem
    I don’t think just being positive and waiting for Allah to do something is enough, and we don’t want someone who can just speak and answer and talk. We want someone who can deliver, someone who has sympathy with the people rather than the establishment, someone who can prove himself through rather than speak speak and speak the tongue of the bureaucracy.

  6. Despite all my political diffrences, Mr. Nazir Sabir is the national hero and our heads are high because of people like him.
    calling idiot to our hero’s shows the level of commitment, respect, inspiration and love towards our mother land.
    Mr. Imran. if you can not respect the national hero, you have no right to use so low words for Mr. Nazir Sabir.
    Don’t forget the day when he took the flag of our country to the highest place of the world.
    Shame on you for such remarks. At least you have become too a small man in my eyes after reading you.
    Be careful when you speak.
