BARA, 9 November: The returning IDPs of the Bara tehsil of Khyber Agency has demanded of the local administration to reopen local business centers.
Talking to TNN, local dwellers of Bara tehsil complained that while the main Bara bazar was closed since long, the authorities were not allowing them to reopen their local village markets. “We have been facing great difficulties. We are forced to travel for miles to bring our daily use items from far flung markets in Peshawar as the local markets are closed,” said one of the residents of Bara tehsil.
Another resident said, “I have to take a long route to bring daily commodities from Peshawar, as a result, the transportation charges also get double.”
On the other hand officials of the local administration said steps were being taken to reopen Bara bazar and the locals would get a goon news soon.
