Pashtoon labourers oppose NOC condition for work in Chitral

CHITRAL: Labourers belonging to Bajaur and other areas have said Chitral police’s directive asking them to submit no-objection certificate (NOC) from their respective districts to continue working in the valley is unjustified and a violation of their basic rights.


They said they were the citizens of Pakistan and had the constitutional right to go anywhere in the country and work to earn a living. They said they possessed the national identity card but police everywhere asked them to bring the NOC.

Without the NOC, the police seize their CNICs rendering them unable to even move around in the district. They called upon the higher authorities to direct the Chitral police to stop harassing the workers. –GH Farooqui
