This is but a conglomeration of a number of problems but underlining tourism and road system.
Tourism in Chitral and road system is demanded to be bus-able at least to Lower Chitral is a limited agenda. The hospitality and roads for buses should be well at priority demanded. Why?You may know it or not.
Currently, the most pressing problem for the people of Chitral is that the subsidy given on wheat must continue. The road infrastructure needed to be extended to Shandur , Borghil, Terich, Khot and Rech valley.
Local agriculture has become badly affected from climate change. It needed to be revamped with those crops whereby people get benefit and add to their food chain from local production.
The increasing melting of glaciers and overflows in rivers damaging lands, forests, crops and private and public property requires plans of actions.
The local businesses , and opportunities of business and work requires to be promoted and developed.
Price control and availability of food items ensured in local markets.
Advice: Currently caretaker govt can’t take and do any measures and so the secretary. Let us wait for the government forms after election and test your cocktail.
