He said his party had no lawmakers elected from Chitral but was still at the forefront to serve the people in the prevailing testing times.
The PML-N leader recalled Nawaz Sharif had provided huge funds for the construction of the Lowari Tunnel and Golen Gol Hydropower project to facilitate the people of Chitral.
The adviser also announced that the federal government would provide a 50 per cent fund for the compensation of people affected in the recent floods in Chitral.
