PESHAWAR: Under the auspices of Tehreek Tahafuz-e-Haqoq Chitral, a protest demonstration was held in front of Peshawar Press Club against dilapidated condition of roads in Chitral, long and unannounced loadshedding, illegal mining and other problems faced by the local people.

On the occasion, Pir Mukhtar said that people in Chitral were facing severe problems in transportation due to the dilapidated roads .
He said despite claims made by former provincial government of Tehreek-e-Insaf and the federal government, attention was not being paid to improving the road system in Chitral.
