Hunza, July 21: Wazir Baig shall not coy away and deprive Hunza of its rights. We will support him. “I openly declare that we will make Hunza a separate district”.
These views and suggestions were expressed by former Chief Executive of GB, Ghazanfar Ali Khan, during an “All parties” meeting held in Hunza. He further said that the initial decision was to make Hunza a separate district but after requests of Mirza Hussain Nagar was also included in the plan.
He blamed Wazir Baig of failing to defend the rights of Hunza Valley.
Speaking about the dammed Hunza River, Ghazanfar said that a “big game” is being played. He said that discharge of water from the lake is not possible during the PPP government.
The gathering was also addressed by leaders of PML, PPP, PMLN and GBDA. The speakers expressed anger and shock over the decision of a GBLA mandated committee to establish all offices of Hunza-Nagar district in Saas Valley, Nagar.
Seasoned PPP leader Hajat Muhammad also condemned the decision and said that he will oppose it actively.
