Swat's people protest for ration cards

By Aamir Iqbal Qureshi

PESHAWAR: Some internally displaced persons from the Malakand Division protested on Wednesday against the government’s failure to issue them ATM and ration cards.

They blocked Charsadda Road that falls within the jurisdiction of Union Council Larama. The police used tear gas to disperse the crowd and baton-charged the protestors.

The situation worsened when the UC nazim asked the police to leave them alone. “The police turned down my requests and even abused me,” said Malik Bakht Zakhir while speaking to SAMAA.

The protestors grew even more angry and started burning tires and chanting anti-police slogans.

The government had promised the people displaced by the fighting in Swat 25,000 rupees and ration cards so they could bring their lives back to normal once they left the camps and returned home. SAMAA
