    ISLAMABAD – The government has decided to convert Gilgit-Baltistan (GB) into a fifth province of Pakistan.

    According to Geo news, Inter-Provincial Coordination Minister Riaz Hussain Pirzadar has said that a committee headed by Special Assistant to Prime Minister Sartaj Aziz had proposed giving the status of a province to GB. The government has approved the suggestion.

    Pirzada added that a bill to amend the Constitution of Pakistan in this regard will be presented in the National Assembly following the suggestion.

    He added that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will also utilise his special powers to grant GB the status of a province.

    I hope they do it properly by inviting UN observers and helding a referendum.

    Gilgit Baltistan should not suffer due to indian occupation of IOK but at the same time the process has to be crystal clear so that in future no more issue of GB rises and all focus can be on IOK.

    Gilgit Baltistan was a region conquered by the Dogra regime; it's people underwent brutal genocide and persecution under the Dogra. Good to see it finally becomes a province and is seen as separate from J&K.

    Giving the status of a province is NOT the same as declaring GB a province.

    The legal issues will have to be considered carefully before making any changes by either side in their respective claims.

    Didn't india gave state status to IOK while keeping it dispute.
    We will give it a province status while also keeping a constitutional cover to it's status as a dispute.
    Also GB was not part of dogra raj when the raja betrayed the people and signed the paper.

    Yes sir.
    Article 370 stops others from buying property in Kashmir and ergo no corporate is interested in moving to the state.
    Lack of economic prosperity is the main reason our youth falls for the job as radicalists offered to them.

    Ab aap bhi happy
    Hum bhi happy. :-)
