By Zahiruddin

CHITRAL: The leader of opposition in the National Assembly, Syed Khurshid Shah has warned the government that strong protest will be launched if the affected people of the earthquake were not properly rehabilitated before the advent of winter season.

Addressing on the occasion of his visit to the quake affected areas of Chitral here on Tuesday, he said that ample time has been given to the government for redressing the issues of the affected people as the opposition did not want confrontation with the ruling party and politicizing petty maters to derive political benefit.

Mr. Shah said that it was his second visit to Chitral in three months which manifested the love of PPP with the people of Chitral which had been established during the era of the party founder Zulfikar Ali Bhutto who had started work on the Lowari tunnel project.

He announced 10 thousand bags of wheat on behalf of the government of Sind and sixty thousand beds, three thermal generators of 250 kw each for upper Chitral where power station has been washed away by the flood on behalf of the party for the quake affected people.

Former information minister Qamar Zaman Kaira, local MPAs Salim Khan and Syed Sardar Hussain Shah also spoke on the occasion.

Speaking on the occasion, district nazim Chitral Maghfirat Shah eulogized the opposition leader for visiting Chitral which was hit by flash flood and earthquake this year.

“The marginalized people are represented by the leader of the opposition and as such the wretched people of Chitral relied on the Khurshid Shah who is kind enough to give them proper attention to solve their problems”, he said.
