    The only achievement of our MNA in past 4 years, utility stores. The Journalists from Chitral should search the archives and produce different promises of MNA in past 4 years (scroll of his timeline on FB will be easy) and then ask him regarding his five top promises and their status as of today.

      So Lawari Tunnel is not an achievement han ? If you are scrolling down his time line on fb then please acknowledge his struggle for Lowari Tunnel, on his request the annual allocation for tunnel was increased from from 50 crore to 6 billion which ensured early completion of the project. Please talk about Torkhow road work on which is underway please check at sight. Talk about NHAs take over of major roads of Chitral which has been included in annual federal budget for 2017-18.

    Well done MNA sahib, Good job. Please also look into the affairs of the existing stores in Chitral. The super store opened in Chitral city despite having average daily sale of over Rs half a million but basic facilities are still not available there. e.g push trolleys and baskets which are available even in small shops else where are not seen there. The official sign board has not not been put up so far. Also the cash desk does not have computerized system and still using primitive methods. Imagine how much of embezzlement would be happening because of manual accounting. There is general complaint that items are sold at higher than designated price. During last Ramazan discount package the utility store staff paid respect to Ramzan by selling stuff expensive instead of the rebate given by the government. This will not happen if the system is computerised. It is important that affairs of Utility Stores are monitored after opening them.
