CHAKDARA, 24 October: The councillors of Chakdara staged a protest demonstration on Friday over not being given powers and funds as promised by the government.
The protesting councillors gathered in front of Chakdara Press Club and chanted slogans in favour of their demands.
The protesters said the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government had promised to devolve the powers at the grassroots level and empower the district governments. They said the government has not given any powers nor did they provide any development funds to the councillors even after five months of the local government elections.
They asked the government to determine the role of the village, peasant, youth and female councillors and announced incentives for them.
