The naib nazim also regretted a demand made by local government representatives from lower Chitral to send district government employees holding the domicile of Upper Chitral to the new district ans said this would create hatred and divisions among the people of Chitral.
Mr Fakhruddin asked the government to stop the process of transferring Class IV employees from lower to Upper Chitral and put in place all missing facilities in the new district.
