    Dear Sister,

    Hope you would be fine and best of your spirits in health. Really it is a good news for our Gilgit brothers but looks an anomaly to all other federal government employees as it would create difference of salaries a lot further. At one side government is trying to remove difference between the salaries of different govt deptts like Courts, Army, Police, Accounts etc and on the other side they are further creating anomalies by giving incentives to just one station or cadre, this is not justified and understood at all. If the increase is to be given it should be same for all the federal/provincial employees so that this unjust gap between different deptts pay may be removed.

    Hope you would agree and try to share your kind thoughts on this issue.

    My sincere regards to my sister.
