PPP warns against unequal distribution of electricity

Qazi Faisal[/caption] CHITRAL: Since the start of electricity supply to the Chitral town from the Golen powerhouse by the SRSP on Friday, district nazim Haji Maghfirat Shah and Khan Hayat Khan have violated the schedule of distribution in connivance with the local WAPDA officials. This was stated by PPP Chitral information secretary Qazi Faisal in a press release here on Sunday. He said for the last three days the houses of the district nazim and Khan Hayat Khan were being supplied uninterrupted electricity while areas such as Hon, Shiaqotek, Denin and many localities in the town still remained without electricity. Power is being supplied to people up to Ragh, Chumarkhon, Orghoch but those who were supposed to get electricity under the schedule are being ignored. “Are these the same religious people who had taken votes from the people of the town on the promise and slogan of equality and justice as enshrined in the Quran,” he said, asking the district nazim and some members of the power committee to fear God and ensure judicious distribution of the electricity in the area. The PPP spokesman warned that if the SRSP, WAPDA, MNA, power committee and the district nazim failed to get the power distribution schedule implemented by June 5, they would be held responsible for any untoward situation.–Bashir Hussain Azad]]>

    Where were the PPP leaders and workers from Chitral when their own Prime Minister Gillani diverted approved funds for Lawari Tunnel to his home city (Multan)? Why did they keep quiet at that time but now raising voice against Maghfirat Shah? The Nazim has not taken the electricity out of CHITRAL.

    Obviously M. Shah has won the election, he has got the upper hand, and it is his right to please the people of his own area first. Coding Quraan at this point makes no sense at all. Jamat islami is political party, every political party comes up with slogan. PPP was there with slogan of Roti Kapra and Makan for poor, After ZA Bhutto his followers ripped of the poor segment of the society on priority basis .. If anyone wants the electricity first in his area, he must win the election, that is how the politics works in almost everywhere .. when Hayatuallah khan was vocal against the power shortage, we did not see any PPP jiala actively participating in the campaign ..

    Qazi is right in his stand. Maghfirat Shah being the district Nazim is wrong this sense being partial to his private voters and bypassing the electricity issue of the town. Deputy Commissioner who is the head of district government is to be approached for this in injustice.
