  1. It was a major fault by Shahzada Mohiuddin Sahib to push Ghulam Mohd with his sons in the election fray because he was the clerk of wheat godown and will continue smuggling the wheat of Chitral to our neighboring countries as there was a report in one of the leading newspapers last year. It is your fault Shahzada Sahib.
