GAHKUCH: Chief Executive Northern Areas Mir Ghzanfar Ali Khan has claimed that they possess important documents on the ownership of Shandur and rumours that a former chief secretary had tried to give these documents to the NWFP government through the DCO of Chitral were baseless.
Talking to local area, he said the federal government had been informed that Shandur belonged to the people of Northern Areas and efforts would be made to protect the area. In reply to a question, he said there was no move to oust him, adding he was acceptable to all the members. He aid progress was being made regarding the political status of the region and during his remaining one-year tenure the nation would hear some good news.
Speaking on the occasion, member Legislative Assembly Rani Atiqa said God has given the power to the area people to protect the boundaries of the region including Shandur. Nobody would be allowed to continue any type of brinkmanship, she added. She said we should protect our resources against plunder by outsiders.
