Slam to all Chitrali people. Chitral is a very beautiful place and the KPK government should start different projects in tourism department in the valley. I live in Punjab and have done double M.A. and L.L.B.
This is a very special project in terms of the needs of a modern housing in our area. I fully agree with Sabir Khan that the politicians should not be allowed to play dirty politics to sabotage this project.. We really appreciate the PTI government for thinking on these lines for the development of the area. This would also bring job oppurtunities for the people..
In the shape of this special news, our politicians have been granted a valued chance to make shine their politics. Although this project is in the best interest of the area, there is a rare chance for the project to be complete without the interference of our politicians. I hope our innocent people would not follow the politicians regarding the said project. We need a political free environment to progress ahead.
