CHITRAL: A large RCC building coming up in Chitral town on the northern side opposite the Chitral Scouts headquarters is an eye catcher. On inquiry our reporter was told that it was the Pakistan Navy’s recruitment center that was being built. The size of the pillars and the amount of steel reinforcement bars (sarya) lying on the ground indicate prima facie that it is sure going to be a large building.
Though it is a good step to encourage Chitralis to get inducted in the Pakistan Navy, but given the geographical location and being farthest point away from the sea both horizontally and vertically, Chitral may not offer many potential recruits to justify so much expenditure on such a large building when made. ..
