(Gilgit) April 13: According to reliable news sources Dr Shama Khalid,the first governor of Gilgit-Baltistan has arrived the capital city Gilgit on her first ever official visit to the newly created ‘’provincial unit’’.

On arrival at the airport she was received by Chief Minister Gilgit-Baltistan Syed Mehdi Shah who was accompanied by Chief Secretary and other high government officials.

Dr Shama who was born in Astore but was married off to a doctor in Abbotabad, was appointed the first governor of Gilgit-Baltistan after the introduction of a long-due legal empowerment package that created structures of governance similar to those practised in the other four provinces of Pakistan. It may be noted that the announcement of of the appointment of a female governor was made by Pakistani president Asif Zardari in an unscripted public speech in Larkana Sindh.This public announcement subsequently became policy and the search began for appropriate candidates. Negotiations were held and offers were made to a number of PPP female politicians including Ms Sanama Bhutto and Sherry Rahman belonging to various part of Pakistan and nobody was really willing to take up the challenge of the job and thus it was decided to choose a so called ”local” or someone from the region itself and hence the appointment of Dr Shama Khalid.

    As this is a known fact that Dr.Shamsa married to a Dr.from Abbotabat, so she deemed to be resident of Abbotabad, then how she claims to be from North and hold locus standi over the Governorship. Mr.Zardari has bright teeths for eating what ever he want…. but no eyes to see who is who…..he just past a lebel on the Ist.lady governor to get political milage…..

    However we people of the North welcome Dr.Shamsa and expect that she would prove herself justified to this Position by doing right things and by making right decisions, we also expect that she would not kill merit while making appointments in the Higher Judiciary of G.B. It is recalled that subsequent to the new package reforms to GB two posts of Judges in the Chief Court GB have been created, but it is with regret to point out that the Govt.has recommended an archaic bureaucrat to one of these positions byepassing most deserving Candidates. Among them incribe is one, who holding double Master degrees in Political Schience and Law and having 19 years standing at the Bar thus qualified to be Judge of High Court and whose application has already been considered but due to reluctance for bribe he is being ignored.

    It is hoped that our new Governor intervene in the matter and would appreciate trasparency and would make these appointments purely on merit.

    appointment of the judges should be made from the subordinate judiciary as the three already existing judges including the chief judge were appointed from the bar. the two senior most district and session judges muhammad Alam and and yar muhammad should be appointed as chief court judges. its the voice of people of north to remove the deprivation from subordinate judiciary and thus justice should be provided to the people of north as the existing judges are political figures with less professional competence.I dont agree Mr taqdir when he talks about a double degree holder and 19 year experience. now its the turn of subordinate judiciay to be elevated to the chief court
