Sources told ChitralToday that ex-accoumtant general Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Shahzada Taimur khisro will contest the election as an an independent candidate. He left Islamabad for Chitral on Sunday morning to submit his nomination papers.
Shahzada Taimur hails from Garam Chashma valley of Chitral and retired from government service in May 2013.
He is highly regarded in Garam Chashma valley and will pose a formidable threat to several candidates particularly PPP’s Salim Khan and PMLN’ Shahzada Iftikharuddin.
It may be mentioned that Shahzada Taimur was an aspirant for the PPP ticket but was not considered by the party even though he has old connections with Asif Ali Zardari and his son Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.
