ISLAMABAD: Speaker of the Gilgit-Baltistan Legislative Assembly (GBLA) Wazir Baig here on Monday took oath as the acting governor of Gilgit-Baltistan.

Chief Justice of GB Supreme Appellate Court Justice Muhammad Nawaz Abbasi administered oath to the acting governor at a simple but an impressive ceremony held at the GB House.

The ceremony was also attended by Chief Minister of GB Syed Mehdi Shah, members of GBLA, ministers and other senior officials of the Gilgit-Baltistan administration.

The seat of governor had fallen vacant after the demise of Dr.Shama Khalid.

After being sworn-in, Wazir Baig talking to media vowed to make all-out efforts for the socio-economic development of the area and welfare of its people.

The acting governor said the GBLA has already taken special measures for maintaining peace, brotherhood and sectarian harmony in the area. He said the committee is interacting with Ulema and religious scholars belonging to different schools of thought to ensure harmony among various faiths and sects.

Wazir Baig said the GB Legislative Assembly and its administration are in constant touch with the federal government for early rehabilitation of the flood-affected people of the area.
