The official notification for Kaira’s nomination as Acting Governor of Gilgit-Baltistan was issued on Saturday.

    It is for the very first time, in history of Pakistan, that a serving federal minister has been appointed governor of a political entity which is beyond the constitution of Pakistan. As, this package has no legal grounds, so this governer is also illegal, i don’t accept him as da governer.

    I agree fully with comrade Hyder Abbas,The Pakistani Government can not hood wink its way to making Gilgit ,Baltistan or any other part of state of Jammu & Kashmir part of its territories in any form Autonomy or full integration, Also it can not decide the future of people of jammu and Kashmir,

    Jammu & Kashmir was never part of Pakistan and never will be,We Kashmir’s have long history ,How far back can the Pakistani trace their history 1947 .

    The son can’t become fathers father,Neither Father can become sons son,But logic says Father can be sons Father.We kashmiri are alive and kicking watch your step Pakistan
