    Incompetent officials have no other work to provide relief to masses and have to pass their idle days by lavishly spending and wasting public resources. In winters and summers, they have nothing to do and resort to these silly acts of organizing festivals and for cheap publicity distributing awards as chief guests.

    I propose a complete ban on holding of festivals including Shandur and Qaqlasht festival by govt departments. Give them to local literary and cultural societies and they will organize such events more efficiently without wasting public money. This will also discourage VIP culture in Chitral.
