Gilgit Baltistan: Chief Minister Invited to CCI Meeting

Inclusion of Gilgit Balchistan representation in the Council of Common Interest (CCI) meeting may spell an improvement but grassroots participation remains limited in the military-controlled region


Below is an article published by Samaa:


Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani has called the meeting of Council of Common Interests (CCI) today to decide about the equitable gas distribution.

It should be mentioned here that the CCI meeting was earlier slated for Tuesday [date]; but, it was cancelled as some chief ministers and government committee members were busy in connection with ten-point agenda.

The Chief Ministers of all four provinces and Gilgit-Baltistan have been invited to the meeting.

An important point to note here is that the CCI meeting has been called on complaint by Punjab Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif against protracted gas load shedding in Punjab.
