[SOS] 500 plus people, including an injured staff of NAPWD, stuck in Gulmit and Aliabad


PT Report

GULMIT, February 5: Nisar Ullah Baig son of Rehmatullah, hailing from Yarzerech Chipursan  is an employee of the NAPWD. He was seriously injured after getting electrocuted a couple of days back while on official duty. He has been suffering at an empty hospital in Gulmit Gojal, the Tehsil Headquarter. There are no boats or choppers to take him out of the region for treatment.

The much trumpeted Chopper service that was to be managed jointly by the NDMA, GB Government and the Aga Khan Foundation has been out of operations, leaving the 25,000 people at the mercy of nature, without any medial care.

It is pertinent to note that several doctors, including one belonging to Hunza Valley, have refused to serve in Gojal Valley, despite of being on the government’s payroll. The GB Health Minister has failed to depute a doctor in the Gojal Valley, despite of making promise on floor of the house.

A renowned social scientist, based in the federal capital, has expressed the fear that geographic isolation of Gojal Valley may lead to ideological isolation also, if the government, administration and the civil society fail to reach out and help the people on humanitarian grounds.
