“Spillway to be opened on March 21”
Gulmit, March 15: Chief Minister of Gilgit – Baltistan, Syed Mehdi Shah, and Speaker GBLA, Wazir Baig, have paid a visit to the dammed Hunza River today. They performed the formality of “inaugurating” the already operational boat service launched by NATCO Gilgit – Baltistan.
According to sources, the blocked spillway will be opened on March 21, the “New Year” eve.
The CM and Speaker have, reportedly, handed over some cash to a community organization for distribution among the IDPs of Attabad Landslide and Gojal Lake Disaster.
A large number of PPP supporters had, reportedly, gathered in Gulmit to receive their party leaders. They were, however, disappointed because the two leaders did not visit the valley, due to “bad weather”.
According to local people boats were operating the whole day.
