  2. grateful to show the picture. the affected people are demanding release of water accumulated in the area. Many farmers have lost their livelihoods,most small farmers up strem hunza river used to grow potato for market.. no more now, the transportation cost has increased–boat service is unreliable and have additional cost for transportatin. tourist did not visit the area due to difficulties in traveling and that has negative impect on the income of local people!!

    The government had promised to release the water in a week time but it is over 18 months no sign of serious efforts is demonstarted.
