Taxi drivers to Yarkhun go on strike

[/caption] The decision was taken in a meeting of the union with Zarbahar Khan, president of the union, in the chair here on Wednesday. Talking to chitraltoday.net, Zarabahar Khan said the fare fixed by the district administration from Chitral to the Yarkhun valley was beyond understanding and devoid of logic. He said the distance from Chitral to the valley was more than 250 km. Moreover; the shabby condition of roads coupled with rising prices of petroleum and spare parts has made it impossible for the transporters to continue service at the fares fixed by the district administration. He added: “We are poor people and if we follow the instruction of the administration, earning bread and butter for our families would be difficult for us”. He added that from today we would observe complete wheel jam strike till our demands are met.]]>
