  1. With due respect Sir, just block the social & other non essential websites, if you are really serious in tackling the issue.

  2. Do you have courage to start action from the Chief Secretary of GB first? the answer is impossible!!

  3. people of GB will not listen you at the end of your tenure, why such strict actions were not taken earlier??

  4. Instructions and orders to public officers to refrain themselves from social network during office hours is good initiatives, we applaud and appreciate it but what about others menace like bribery, nepotism, theft, illegal contracts and hiring, miss-management in PWD and Education department, law and order etc. There is a long list which is not possible to report here.

  5. A direct attack on chief Secretary, the poor CM has nothing else to talk about.

  6. Abstain from using face book twitter yahoo,but indulge in corruption nepotism favoritism—— what an advice lolzzz

  7. I would rather urge the government officials specially bureaucrates to use social media as one of the official medium to communicate with public as we all know how efficient our civil servants are when it comes correspond with the general public.
    “wasting time on Facebook during office hours” of Chief Secretary Gilgit resolved my problem which was lagging from almost an year. I filed a complaint on CS’s Fb profile about a senior civil servant for not paying me rent of my house and not evicting it regardless of my numerous written notices; with in no time CS responded to my message and mintues later his PA called me and asked me to meet him at his office the other day. I told him I may not be able to come as I am in Islamabad. CS’s PA assured me that I will be informed about my issue the day after.The same day at 8 pm the senior civil servant who was ignoring my notices (as he was not wasting his time in office hour by using FB) called me and asked me to send someone to collect the monthly rental of 9 months the next day and also infromed me that the house has been vacated. My problem was solved by CS’s wasting his time on Facebook during office hours. Please keep it up !!
