    Gilgit,March 16:The growing unemployment in Gilgit-Baltistan has undermined the economic and social fabric of the Himalayan region. Lack of infrastructure here has prevented entrepreneurs from setting up industries that generate employment.This has forced many educated young men to leave behind their land and loved ones to migrate to Pakistan's big cities.Most have ended up as unskilled laborers in the ghettoes of Karachi and Rawalpindi. Increasing frustration has led many to commit suicide.
