Charity distribution cause of grievance among Chitral locals

9 May, 2019

Chitral: Charity food stuff sent by Saudi King were distributed in Chitral town. Earlier similar charity tranche from Qatar were also distributed in same manner. Many people have taken exception to the method of distribution saying the concerned managers and officials distributed the goods on personal approval basis instead of reaching out to the deserving. Some complained that only inhabitants of the town could benefit whereas residents of far flung areas who were more deserving were denied the benefit.

A section of the Chitrali poppulation however rejected the idea of selective charity and said if Saudi Arabia and Qatar wanted to benefit the people they should set up hospitals, schools, power statios etc which can benefit the poor people collectively. .. CN report, 09 May 2019
