Gilgit, November 14: The district administration and GB government are selling relief items provided for calamity hit Gojal Valley by the Chinese Government in markets.

The RMCG said that none of the announcements and promises made the federal and GB government have been materialized. They prayed to Chief Justice of the Supreme Appellate Court to take Suo Moto notice of the situation and provide justice to the people of Gojal Valley.
“If we do not get justice, there will be no option left but to resume agitation”, said Ali Qurban, convenor of the Rabita Committee. “We will bring the local people to the spillway and start working in protest”, he further said.
Mutabiat Shah denies allegations – Responding to the press conference of RMCG, the technocrat member of GBLA, Mutabiat Shah – who is one of the people affected by the dammed Hunza River – has denied the allegations as false and baseless.
He has said that FWO is working on the spillway for the past 45 days to drain the river lake.
