Will political parties honour their joint resolution?
14 Apr, 2018
Chitral .. Now that it is almost certain that Chitral district will have to go to polls minus one Provincial Assembly seat, will the leaders of political parties of Chitral who on more than one occasion had threatened through a joint resolution that in such an eventuality, not only will political parties boycott the general elections but the sitting members of the Assemblies will also resign prematurely in protest. If past record is any criteria to be considered, Chitrali leaders generally do not enjoy a very good reputation of standing up and sacrificing for a cause (save an odd noble exception). Our politicians have always preferred pragmatism over principles. This time again a collective test of the guts and resolve of Chitralis will be tested. Let us see the net result.
