  1. Pakistan is not a rich country and furthermore Chitral is the most remote area in Pakistan. This is not Switzerland. In the name of anti encroachment campaign poor vendors are shunt and their cabins destroyed and even broken down. A poor vendor makes his child work with him not for a fun or making millions a day, instead for living that remains least for his family survival. O.K, give them pension or ration for make living run then they will all attend schools. If they are paid as that of Deputy Commissioner then they will attend Beacon House School system. On the contrary if they are striving just to manage their survival then be afraid of the wrath of God Almighty and do not snatch their piece of bread, do not tease poor folk and challenge wrath of God.
