Musharraf directs Nilofar

Gen. Musharraf orders the lady to carry on with her work and no running away from the tasks given to her. Small hickups must not be taken seriously when you have full confidence in the ladership of president general Pervez Musharraf. You got a strong support and your work is commendable. There is lot to do in the Hunza, Gilgit area and you do need to concentrate that part of the country as well to procure funds from Tourism. Good luck and be brave.
