Protest held against shortage of wheat

DROSH: A large number of people belonging to Drosh and nearby areas held a protest against shortage of wheat in the grain godown here on Wednesday.

The protesters blocked the main road connecting Chitral with down districts and chanted slogans against the shortage and weekly sale of wheat.

Commuters remained stranded on both sides of the blocked road in the town. 

Additional Assistant Commissioner Muhammad Ali later reached the spot and assured the protesters that he would talk to the authorities concerned to increase the quota of wheat for the area.

He also advised them not to block the road every time as issues can also be resolved through talks with the district administration and departments concerned.

He warned that if the road was blocked on the excuse of a protest in future, legal action would be taken against the responsible.

On the assurance of the AC, the protest was called off.
