Timber mafia trying to bring blue-eyed official as DC — 1 Comment

  1. Thank you Chitral Today. Even if this news is not correct you have done very well in highlighting an issue that can destroy Chitral more than the glacial bursts threatening us each year. In fact the two are related very closely.
    I just cannot understand why none of our elected leaders have taken a strong stand against the people ( especially those local to Chitral) who are bent on cutting down the few trees that are left in our forests. And knowing that cutting down these trees will destroy the habitation below them when the mountain slides over their homes every time there is rainfall in the area.
    And how much longer are we going to continue with this “windfall” bullshit. Have you seen the millions of cft of timber lying on the roadside near Naghar? Windfalls? You will need a hurricane blowing continuously to bring down so many handsome and healthy trees. This is robbery. This is theft. This is murder.
    Your news about such a DC coming to Chitral is quite remote. To do such a thing they will have to change both the present Chief Secretary and the present Commissioner Malakand. While these two officers occupy their chairs Chitral is safe.
    Yes the forest money is piling up in Chitral and has reached 43 Crores as of now. Traditional mafia of timber fame are not liking a strong and honest DC Naveed Ahmed disallowing their fingers from entering this pile of money. May be that is what is prompting this story of the change of DC. But keep writing dear Chitral Today. You are doing us very good service while you write on such topics.
