Tehsil Awaz Forum Chairman Malik Manzoor Ahmad Baga has underscored the need for devising a policy to solve the Thal problems to end deprivation of the public of the area. He was addressing a seminar on the topic of ‘Thal problem’ which was presided over by AC Ch Ahsan Ullah. The seminar was jointly organised by Awaz Forum Tehsil Noorpur Thal and the Tehsil Administration. He said that the Awaz Forum was the only public forum which had not only identified the burning issues of the Thal but also expressed solidarity with the people of the area.

He said that there was also a need for promoting public awareness regarding the development of all backward villages. Former TBA President Malik Namat Ullah Gahi, Malik Shafqat Hussain Gujar, Noor Din Malik Hayat Joya, Sheikh Abdul Majeed and Malik Akhtar Hussain Kallu also spoke on the occasion.

Action against profiteers: Social workers Advocate Raja Muhammad Ashraf Hayat, Haji Noor Gul Khan, Muhammad Iqbal, Raja Dilvar Kamran and Shahnawaz Khan have urged DCO to take stringent action against profiteers and hoarders.

They noted that prices of all household commodities, fruits and vegetables, have been fearlessly raised by shopkeepers due to lack of efficient price control mechanism, resulting in further intensifying the hardships being faced by poor masses. They mentioned that although price lists were regularly issued by  market committee but no shopkeeper bothers to adhere the prices quoted in these lists.
