Gilgit, March 5: The road to Misgar Valley, located in Gojal (upper Hunza), has been in a dilapidated condition for decades. Several accidents have taken place on the lethal road in the past , taking lives of dozens of people.A hydal power project has also been a work-in-progress for almost one decade, with little or no success. Successive governments have been delaying completion of the project, on one pretext or the other. On paper the project’s power generation capacity has been doubled over the last couple of years but the actual work being carried out is very slow.
The local people have requested the elected leaders of the region and the Chief Secretary to take notice of the situation and expedite the work on the power project. They have also requested to expand the road and improve its condition.
