    1. My Dear Gazali,
      Thank you for being honest delivering your opinion.
      In short this is not only Mr. Amjad Ayub decision but 50 other members from across the country who kindly elected me. I think it is all earnings of my those 31 years that I have spent in this industry among them and that they also appreciated Walji’s for its contribution for tourism, as I contested from the platform of Walji’s Family of Businesses.

      God bless you.
