This was disclosed by WCP Chairman and provincial parliamentary secretary on information and culture Nadeem Qureshi during inaugural ceremony, here on Monday. Under WCP, Rs 32 millions would be spent on restoration of Sarafa Bazaar.

Nadeem Qureshi remarked that there were many buildings made of woods in interior city. He maintained that these wooden buildings would be revived in original shape.

A study work was in progress in this regard, he hinted. Similarly, the renovation work will also be done at all historic Masajid of the interior city.

Deputy Commissioner Aamir Khattak was also present and he observed that reconstruction of wall of Fort Kuhna Qasim was also an important project. In case, the wall was not restored to its original shape, then it would lead to end of available traces of the historic fort.
