Chitral — Tehsil Nazim Chitral Molana Ilyas along with members of the Tehsil council formally innaugurated the TMA transport Adda at the Ataliq chowk, Chitral town. In his address the Nazim said it was a long standing demand of the people to formally declare this already existing adda as official TMA adda so that full fledged facilities can be extended to the travelers. He thanked Wg Cdr (r) Fardad Ali Shah for being generous to segregate precious land for transport usage purposes.
Ex President Chitral press club Muhkamuddin presented words of welcome and thanks. The owner Wg Cdr (r) Fardad Ali Shah congratulated the participants and the people in general for the fulfillment of their heart’s desire and thanked the tehsil nazim, members of the Tehsil council and the TMO for actualising people’s demand.
