Chitrali students are facing anxiety due to the online classes as it can ruin their futures due to the fact that they don’t have internet facility in their areas.
They have begged the local government and other authorities but all their struggles are in vain. In this era of disappointment, the Chitrali students inhabits optimism in the media to raise their voice and help them out in this terrible time.
Thus we all request the local media to help us out in this difficult time!
In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, educational institutions have been closed across the country and the institutions have started online classes to save students from academic losses.
But due to connectivity issues, students in Chitral could face problems in accessing the classes online.
Though the HEC has announced to help students overcome the internet issues in collaboration with the PTA and other departments, it is impossible to provide such a facility in far-off areas of Chitral or improve the already haggard internet system in areas where it is available.
Now with the indication from the government that the lockdown may be imposed again in the wake of the increasing number of COVID-19 patients, there is no likelihood of educational institutions reopening soon.

A very valid point put forward , much appreciated????. We the undergraduate and graduate level students of Chitral are already in a hand to mouth status as our curriculum is devastated by the pandemic and also of the fact that more than 80% of students of Chitral don’t avail proper internet facility, we are already behind a semester now because of this pandemic, further loss will be observed if the Local Government, Provincial Government, HEC and PTA fail to take this matter seriously, there must be a proper plan for the upcoming students study problems and also compensation for the big educational loss taken till date, we the students degrade any scorn decisions taken upon our education, there must be a proper decision taken upon or else the university students would step up against the government’s scorn and nonserious statements.
We must be united to stop us been victimized by any such decisions by the academic institutions!
If we didn’t stand up for our rights, no one will give us!
