CHITRAL, April 11: Former MNA and Jamaat-i-Islami candidate for NA-32, Chitral, Maulana Abdul Akbar Chitrali has said it was he whoi got work on Lowari tunnel started by consistently raising the issue on the floor of the National Assembly during his tenure as MNA. maulanaAddressing a press conference at Chitral Press Club on Wednesday, he claimed credit for the long-awaited project and dispelled the impression that the work was started by then president of Pakistan Pervez Musharraf. Some elements are misleading the people of Chitral and crediting the former dictator for the tunnel project to get political benefit, he said. Maulana Chitrali said the decision of Pervez Musharraf will jeopardize the peaceful atmosphere of the district as he was the most wanted man of Taliban who pandered to the whims and wishes of America when he was ruling the country. To a question, he said that he was not afraid of defeat if the former dictator contested elections from Chitral but he was anxious about its peace and tranquility which will be at stake.–Zahiruddin]]>
