PM terms ECL, a calamity for ruling elite

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan said the Exit Control List (ECL) was “a calamity” for the ‘ruling elite’ in previous regimes who did not appreciate the captivating grandeur of Pakistan which was unparalleled.

On his twitter account, in an apparent reference to his political adversaries, he said “The captivating grandeur of our land is why I would be happy just remaining confined here working for our people.”

“Sadly this beauty was not appreciated by our ruling elite, which is why ECL is such a calamity for them,” he said in a series of tweets.

The Prime Minister posted videos clips with remarks that the majestic beauty and diversity of ‘our land is unparalleled’.

The video clips depict Baltoro glacier, the world’s biggest mountain glacier located outside Polar Regions, 43 miles long and over 3 miles wide in the Karakoram range of Gilgit Baltistan.

The biggest mass of glacier is clearly visible from the space. The region has the greatest concentration of the world’s highest peaks including K-2, inhibited by rare wildlife like Markhor and snow leopards.
