Checking Deforestation in Chitral is Welcomed

Entire population of Chitral are highly grateful to Adviser to Chief Minister Mr. Fazal Illahi for his visit to Chitral and taking some sort of tangible steps to check deforestation in the district which directly result flash floods and devastation. Area under forest is extremely limited in Chitral and people of the area are experiencing serious inconvenience and difficulty in getting fuel woods and timbers from the limited forest areas which are spread only in southern Chitral. Cutting the limited forest areas and subsequent smuggling to down district in the garb of marking and artificial harvesting by a few group of timber mafia is heinous crime which should tackled with iron hands.

We the people of Chitral highly appreciate this act of the government and request them to further beef up its efforts to control smuggling within the district and completely bane the notorious term of Marking (Artificial Harvesting/ green cutting) which is prime cause of deforestation in Chitral. This initiative of the government should be implemented with full force and writ of the government should be restored on the ground in protecting greenery of Chitral.
