Opponents of UoC at Syedabad have political motives: MNA

PESHAWAR: Chitral Action Council, a group of the workers of opposition parties, has expressed concerns over delay in construction of Chitral University and demanded of the government to ensure its early establishment.

Addressing a news conference at Peshawar Press Club on Monday, MNA Maulana Abdul Akbar Chitrali said that the previous provincial government had announced to set up Chitral University.

He said that a 166-kanal piece of land was already purchased on Drosh Road in Syedabad for the university but work was not initiated on the project even after lapse of five years.

Flanked by other office-bearers of the council including its chief organiser Inayatullah Aseer, the Jamaat-i-Islami lawmaker said  some influential people wanted to shift the university to Seen Lasht village on Garam Chashma Road for their political motives that caused delay in execution of the project.
