When (and if) built, the “High Head Run of the River Peaking” project will take around 5 years to complete, if every thing goes according to plan, which is unlikely, if the pace of past power projects in the region is any evidence.
I also remember Sher Ullah Baig and his young son, Sher Afzal, residents of Shishkat, who were shot dead at point blank by Hunza Police in Aliabad, while those affected by the flooding of their houses were protesting for their rights. They are yet to receive justice. But we have not, will never, forget them. I would like to remind Governor Mehdi Shah that it was during his government these two people were shot dead to clear the road in Aliabad for his visit.
