Pakistan People’s Party Chitral leader and former bureaucrat Sultan Wazir Khan has demanded the provincial and federal government to construct mineral processing and development zone and an economic zone in Chitral under the game changer China-Pakistan Economic Corridor and to inter-connect Chitral via Ghizer, Gilgit Chumarkan, Mastuj – Shusht, Yarkhoon and Shah Jinali, Torkhow.

In a press statement issued here, Mr. Khan said that Chitral is rich with costly mines and precious minerals. He pointed out that very huge and costly metal reserves are lying untouched at Moghulang Rech, Torkhow. There is a vast potential for establishing industries in tourism, marble, woodcraft and wool in Chitral.

He said that Chitral is the largest district of KPK and is strategically located in the most sensitive geo-political area. He deplored that this area has always been neglected in the past and no efforts have ever been made to develop the infra-structure and economic conditions of its people. Chitral neither appears in any of the plans of CPEC nor in the list of the proposed sites of economic zones identified by the Board of Investment who has marked places in KP for construction of economic zones.

He demanded from the Government of KPK to immediately send these suggestions to the Joint Coordination Committee (JCC) for consideration.

He warned the provincial government that if these three suggestions are not recommended to the Joint Coordination Committee, the people of Chitral would be left with no option except to use their constitutional right to lodge protest in the streets, besides knocking the doors of the judiciary.

Sultan Wazir Khan,
PPP Chitral
