Elders to boycott CM's Bajaur visit today over 'unmet' promises.

BAJAUR -- Tribal elders and political activists on Tuesday announced to boycott the Chief Minister Mahmood Khan's visit to Bajaur today (Wednesday) for 'ignoring' the district in development projects.

Addressing a news conference at the Bajaur Press Club here, they said they won't participate in any of the activities planned during the chief minister's visit.

Ettehad Malkanan Bajaur president Malik Bahadur Shah, JUI-F district chief Maulana Abdur Rasheed, PML-N president Gul Kareem Khan, Khar tehsil chairman Said Badshah, ANP general secretary Nisar Baz Khan, PPP's Shahabuddin and JI's Qari Abdul Majeed were present in the presser.

They claimed Mahmood Khan was visiting the district just to mobilise the PTI workers for the party's long march on Islamabad. They alleged the chief minister had not only ignored Bajaur in the government's development funds but also failed to honour his commitments announced during his previous visits to the region.

The elders and political leaders alleged the chief minister had appointed 481 people of his native Swat district in the local health department. They accused the chief minister of shifting development funds meant for Bajaur to Swat.

They said the chief minister's public meeting in Khar Bazaar would disrupt business activities.
