Lowari Tunnel

Published Feb 01, 2014 07:05am

LOWARI Tunnel is for maintaining the flow of traffic through by keeping it open during winter.

The government should make its utmost effort to maintain the flow of transit through the tunnel during the winter season.

Lowari Tunnel is the only route connecting our area with the rest of the country.

Apart from all other basic needs, many patients are needed to be transported to the cities for better healthcare facilities. It is a matter of life and death.

If the people of Chitral demand that the tunnel be open on a daily basis, it will not be an unjust demand. It is a fight for their rights.

Blame can be laid on the previous government for diverting funds to other projects and ignoring Chitral. Yet to be optimistic, we expect the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government to show some difference.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif must act as the chief executive of the whole country, not only for Punjab. We should not be put on the mercy of the National Highway Authority.
