Appointment of Barjees Tahir


Chaudhry Muhammad Barjees Tahir has been appointed as Governor of Gilgit-Baltistan. Later is a key Figure of the current ruling party of Pakistan (Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz).  Though Governor is currently Federal Minister yet Federal government has appointed him as Governor. That has initiated a fresh debate in Pakistan for Pre-poll rigging.

 Chaudhry Muhammad Barjees Tahir, who hails from Shangla Hill, is under a bit of pressure. Chairman Pakistan Tahreek Insaaf Mr Imran Khan is blazing all guns on this appointment. He terms the act of Government as pre-poll Rigging. According to independent sources, a local politician currently not very powerful is behind this appointment. Various lawmakers think the appointment is legal by law, but the timing makes the action suspicious.

The Federal Government claims in 2009, during the PPP-led Government, they appointed a Federal minister as Governor of Gilgit Baltistan.  Qamar Zaman Kaira was then made Governor of Gilgit Baltistan. People of Gilgit Baltistan are unhappy with the power play as they think nobody is paying attention to their problems. There are big electricity crises, and mostly 90% of Gilgit Baltistan is without Electricity. People demand they should be given a chance to elect there representatives; hence Election should not be selected by Federal Government.
