BOONI: A “Save Chitral, Save Pakistan” bike rally was seen off here on Tuesday which will end in Gwadar, Balochistan.
The Chitral Heritage and Environment Protection Society (CHEPS) in collaboration with Chitral Biker Club has arranged the rally in order to create awareness about climate change.
Addressing a gathering of people amid heavy snowfall in Booni, CHEPS chief Rehmat Ali and Biker Club’s chairman Ikramullah said 27 per cent of total water being supplied to Pakistan originated in Chitral. Water is life, so we have to work collectively to conserve this precious commodity. Chitral is also a land of peace and through this rally we want to spread the message of peace throughout the world.
Meanwhile, a function will be held at the DC office in Chitral at 10am on Wednesday to send off the rally towards its destination.
