SHUTTER DOWN AND
WHEEL-JAM-STRIKES AND POOR MAN
On 3rd march a
strike was observed by the business forum of Chitral town which
stop productive activity in Chitral city. It is strange that nobody
cares for the daily wages workers who form a sizeable population of
the Chitral town and surrounding areas, they suffer greatly due to
this strike. These poor but hardworking peoples toil all day for
meager income to keep their family alive. Now anyone can call a
strike as it is very simple. Publish some advertise and send some
guys to force shopkeepers to close their shops. In such a situation
just to cash the opportunity the transporter also join them.
Shopkeeper and transporter who form the biggest mafia of Chitral.
The transporter operate a service which is not fit even for animals
to use and charged high fare instead come down the fuel charges
50%, join in the strike to safeguard their interest and shopkeeper
is prowling the community from both hand and they also donít have
any care about poor community.
A large number of
helpless patients in DHQ hospital also suffered without anybody,
specially the business forum representatives who called for the
strikes, bothering about them. As authorities look at the suffering
of the common man as silent spectators, one can only look towards
courts to come to the rescue of the daily wage workers and the
sick. They should ask the forum calling the strike to deposit a
nominal sum as compensation for distribution among those who suffer
loss of earning or disruption in health care.
