DIFFERENCE IN VISION (HAFIZ UR REHMAN VS MANZOOR PARWANA)
By: Syed Asad Hassan
There are three approaches which are getting fame rapidly among the people of Gilgit-Baltistan. The democratic politics, religious politics and nationalism are in competition to achieve their desire goals and manifestos. Among them there is eighty percent influence of religious politics on people due to early planned great game by British in the area. The people are consciously or unconsciously supporting the hidden hands. The democratic politicians are loyal to Islamabad, while nationalists are struggling for genuine rights of Gilgit-Baltistan.
The manifestos of them should be judged by practical works not by words and speeches because nice words are also written on walls. It will take thousands of pages to decide the real patriot of G-B among them so, we are going to reveal two secret letters trying to differentiate the two visions one letter by Hafiz Hafiz ur Rehman (PML-N), the other by Manzoor Parwana ( Gilgit Baltistan united movement) to Prime minister Pakistan.
From 15 to 27th of April the nation of G-B was having sit in strike for restoration of wheat subsidy. Instead of favoring the nation he wrote a letter to Prime minister. He said that some religious and nationalist parties are trying to wayward the people to create violation. He actually wanted to suggest that the wheat price should be equal to that in Punjab. He further said that PPP had decreased the price only and only to increase its vote bank.
Recently, the president Gilgit Baltistan united movement Manzoor parwana wrote a letter to Prime minister demanding the re-opening of historical roots of Kargil and Laddakh. In his letter he suggested that in spite of creating law and order situation among the two countries by re-opening the routes the countries should encourage business among people likewise, the effected people on both sides of borders will also be able to meet each other.
On one hand Hafiz Hafiz ur Rehman by demanding increase in wheat price trying to endorse the bureaucracy who want to with draw the subsidy while on other hand Manzoor Parwana is trying to resolve the genuine issues of Nation. Now, it is up to nation of G-B, that which approach they declare the genuine and real based approach for better future of G-B.
