    Emerging Pakistan. Congratulations MPA Wazir Zada took it up well now. Best of Luck. We need to depoliticize Shandur and discourage monopoly agents. This event should be international and on merit. Few of the those working in Shandur festival management are those have monopoly from decades. Shandur Management Authority should be created on merit.
