As the general election is coming closer, some candidates have resorted to use the mosques for their electioneering purposes in Chitral, which hitherto have been solely used by the religious parties, voters said.

But now candidates were seen thronging the mosques to address voters after congregational prayers. Imams Shahi Bazar Mosque told that the candidates were addressing the faithful soon after the prayers regularly for the last five days.
