Skardu: Gilgit-Baltistan should be divided into two separate commissionerates and two more districts be established in Baltistan so that the problems of the people could be solved at their doorsteps. These views were expressed by president People’s Youth Organisation Gilgit-Baltistan Abdullah Haideri while talking to this correspondent here on Monday. He said Gilgit and Baltistan were two separate regions and one chief secretary cannot resolve the problems of the regions. “Therefore, it is necessary that each region should have separate commissioner.”
