  3. Congratulations to the newly elected Chairman and his team.

    I hope, under the charismatic leadership of Kako Amjad Ayub, his team will go beyond Karimabad and Aliabad to the whole Karakorom Areas and turn around this organization.

    For the last many years, people have reservations about KADO and it was rightly narrated as Karimabad Aliabad Development Organization. With the current change in the office, I would request Amjad Kakoo to look back and correct its course for the future.

    With my best wishes for the future.
