Bullet proof vehicles have to be purchased for the CM and Governor Gilgit-Baltistan and if approved, it would cost 150 Million Rupees. I cannot understand the misery of why the government and the politicians always place their security on priority basis rather facilitating the people already deprived of even the basic amenities of life. The poor is dying of hunger and they are busy planning their personal security with the blood of people. If their security is so much important then why they are not arranging it by their own expenses? As they can manage it. Why they consider them self the most important to ones among all?Why they are taking the sectarian turmoil as deadly for them self only rather the victim is always the poor one who leaves his home early in the morning in search of his food?
For God sake Mr.Chief Minister & Mr.Governor nobody is going to hit you. Can you please refuse the bullet proof’s and order to spent these 150Million to setup a Professional institute i-e an Engineering, Medical or a Law college so that the youth can equip themselves with the modern and most demanded education which is inevitable in bringing up the status of this region equal to that of the modern world. And if yes, then I am sure that God will be protecting you from any attack of you fear. The whole region will then pray for your protection. They will volunteer them self to body guard you. This is all about “to do the needful in the time”
We must be aware of the fact that the only key to overthrow the threats of terror is by facilitating and promoting Education. The government is responsible to ensure the security of each and every person of its state. Purchasing only two bullet proof vehicles is not the solution to the problem.
