Gilgit, March 12: The Federal Government Boys High School Naltar Payeen is located in the picturesque Naltar Valley, in the Gilgit district, close to the regional capital.
This area is frequented by politicians, representatives of the armed forces, top bureaucrats and tourists from across the country and the world, who come here to enjoy the serene beauty and to participate in or watch skiing competitions when the slopes are laden with snow.
It appears that these politicians, leaders of the armed forces and the many others who descend on the region to enjoy the beauty do not look beyond the beautiful mountains and slopes. Had they peeped deeper, they might have seen the fate of this school.
It goes without saying that strict action needs to be taken against those who are playing with future of the region by depriving the children of the opportunities to get education in more conducive learning environment.
The local people have hoped that the authorities will not leave any stone unturned to bring this school out of the abyss and punish those responsible for this state of affairs.
