Administration[edit]

The capital appears to be Rashidan, a new township near Hussain Khel and Qulgina.

29,000 people are living in the villages of the district. 96% of them are Pashtun and 4% Hazara.

Water shortage[edit]

The continuing drought is the main problem of the district. The lack of water make people leave their villages and go to other districts or abroad.
