BARA: At a time when the government and Chief Justice of Pakistan is urging people to donate for Diamer-Basha dam, PTI MNA from Bara set up a camp to collect donations for Bara Dam.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf MNA Iqbal Afridi set up a camp on last Wednesday and urged people to donate for the dam, locals said, adding that people donated several hundred thousands.

The MNA said that the dam would generate five megawatt electricity that will fulfill need of Khyber and Mohmand tribal districts.

Local residents criticized the MNA and said that he neither opened an account for donation nor Bara dam proposed by the government for construction.

“Days are not far when the government will collect donation for construction of a small bridge,” said Asif Afridi.
