  1. It is beyond doubt that Abdul Wali Khan Advocate is one of the the talented and brilliant politicians in Chitral. In a situation in which we live, we need a leader like Abdul Wali Khan who can struggle for the rights of Chitralis in the parliament. Unfortunately, we have been selecting Molanas and contractors from this region to fight with the high-educated people in the parliament and now we should rethink about our past and must support those people who possess capabilities to serve the remote region.
