In a telephonic meeting with contractors association of Wali Bagh Charsadda, the ANP provincial president said that contractors too had been affected like other segments of the society due to lockdown and the government should take measures for mitigating their sufferings.
He said that development activities could not be boosted in the construction sector without support of contractors, so the government was needed to take steps for resolving their problems.
