The situation is all the more hazardous as the gap between the spillway and the lake level has narrowed to six feet. The inflow at the Lake is 2600 cusecs and outflow is mediocre 200 cusecs causing the lake to have spread over 26-kilometer area.

The administration, holding the situation as highly hazardous, set May 25 as deadline for overflow from the Lake.

Meantime, government of Pakistan declared a high alert and imposed from today a prohibition on entering the vacated villages in view of potential threat of Lake burst or imminent flood.

  1. Hanza Lake swelled at dangerous level – A well-designed story of corruption (Minster Mr. Raja Pervaiz Asraf and Ahmed Kamal his sub-servant)

    The water level at the artificial lake at Hunza River at Attaabad in constantly raising now reached more than 390 feet. Why, it was being raised up to this level and not breached? This is as per mala-fide design of one of member NDMA to turn this tragedy to grab money and open avenues of corruption for his masters.

    As we, all knows that initially, the volume of lake was very small. When Army Engineer and other experts reached in 3rd week of January, they have unanimously decided to breach the lake. Later on request of Government of Pakistan, a special team from China arrived in early February. The team spend two day at site, examined the landslide and briefed the than Chairman NDMA General Farooq. Peculiar nature of disaster has forced Chairman NMDA to call on Federal Flood Commission of Pakistan (FCC) for technical assistance. FCC working under Ministry of Water and Power(MOWP) as per mandate and being apex body to supervising Tarballa Dam watershed management.

    The minister for Water and Power of Pakistan, Mr. Raja Pervaiz Asraf who has been under serious criticism because having serious corruption charges over Rental Power Scam, deputed Mr. Ahmed Kamal an official of MOWP (FCC) to assist NMDA.

    After joining as Member (technical) Mr. Ahmed Kamal, immediately order FWO (Army Engineers deputed to make spillway). In addition, at he started negotiation with Chinese team for making breach of lake as a Mega project to mint money for bunch of corrupt Minister and other cronies. The Chinese team categorically told Ahmed Kamal and other officials in a meeting at Islamabad the technical assistance would purely on humanitarian ground. The Chinese team further told Government of China would not claim any single penny against this job and purpose of help is rehabilitates the affected area of Attabad and Karakoram Highway, as soon as possible.

    The Karakoram Highway is a trade as well as strategic link between two countries. Karakoram Highway also link Arabian Sea with Tajikistan, China, and other Central Asian states and Russia also.

    This is the inside authentic story narrated by patriotic, loyal official of NDMA, who had closely watched witnessed the whole deal of Ahmed Kamal. Now, it is duty of Media, impendent Judiciary and Pak Army to investigate why Ahmad Kamal doen this? Is it part of international conspiracy to cut Gilgit-Baltistan from Pakistan or whole lake was not breached to grab foreign Aid and other funds.

    Full marks to Mr. Raja Pervaiz Ashraf for selecting Mr. Ahmed Kamal, who has all capabilities and fame for well-design and engineered corruption.

    In Past, he had successfully plea bargain with National Accountability Bureau (NAB) when he was held responsible for massive corruption. Record can be choked from NAB authorities.

    Mr. Corruption of Ahmed Kamal is always use innovative method for corruption when Japan (JICA) offered technical and financial support to mitigate flood hazard in Rawalpindi. He jumped as project manger and Rs.360 Million project cost was ruined due to ineptness and corruption of Ahmed Kamal. As Project Manager, he was responsible of all financial embezzlement. The equipment purchased against the project could not installed at different or purchase having inferior specification. Prime Minister Inspection team with some senior judge of Supreme Court can set a enquiry and physical verification of equipment purchase and installed.

    In financial year 2007-8 he had spoiled Rs;- 52.535 million against Emergent Flood program executed under PSDP 2007-8, the detail is given as under

    He is also directing responsible of serious misappropriation and financial embezzlement of amount Rs;-14.5 million a flood protection project “Protection Bund at Gahkuch Silpi Sand, Sultanabad, Yasin and Ghizer District.
    Protective bund having cost Rs;-7.135 million at Usmanabad Basin Gilgit
    Flood Protective and River training work for Daral/ Tangir valley in District Diamer having cost amount Rs; – 30.90 million.Mr. Ahmed Kamal has linked with top civil bureaucracy and close link with influential Members of National Assembly(MNA) and Senators.

    l\in 2009, four MNA spend seven day in Thailand and Ahmed Kamal sponsored the whole trip excluding personal shopping.

    The Modus-Operandi of Ahmed Kamal in corrupt practices is unique. Instead of establishing and developing real-estate assents, he is importing Gold and doing currency business since last 15 years. In year, 2003, When NAB started investigation to probe his corruption; authority had only confiscated 3.5 KG Gold and did not file any case against him.

    We the People of Pakistan demand for a fair and judicious trail of Ahmed Kamal for

    • Delaying the breech of lake for his own vested interest

    • Demand for investigation and expose the story of kickback from Chinese team

    • We also demand that all looted money by him as Chief Engineer FFC Ministry of Water and power ought to refund and despite national exchequer.
