Hunza, Nov 6: The local leaders of PPP in Hunza Valley condemned the statement of Finance Minister in which he had said that Wazir Baig was creating hurdles for finalization of the Hunza – Nagar district headquarters.
The PPP leaders said that Muhammad Ali Akhtar was telling a lie and trying to fool the public. They maintained that the real hurdle has been created by the Finance Minister himself, who wants the headquarters to be established in his own constituency.
It is pertinent to note that a committee formed by the GBLA had suggested establishment of the district headquarters at Saas Valley, Nagar, acceptable to majority of the people of Hunza-Nagar district. However, Muhammad Ali Akhtar had rejected the suggestion and instead demanded establishment of the headquarters in his own constituency.
Resolutions have already been approved by the GBLA for separate of Hunza and Nagar into two districts, on which no action has been taken so far.
