Govt asked to resume work on Lowari Tunnel

CHITRAL, June 16: The members of All Political Parties Steering Committee, Maulana Abdul Shakoor, Mehmud Esa Khan, Sher Baig, Sher Hakim Khan and others, have demanded of the federal government to re-start work on the Lowari Tunnel project without any delay. Addressing a press conference here on Saturday, they expressed displeasure over the stoppage of work on the project despite the tall claims of the government. They said the federal minister had time and again claimed to have allocated two billion rupees for restarting the work on the project but even then nothing has materialized. They warned that the inordinate delay in the commencement of work on the project has disappointed the people of Chitral beyond description and they would turn to violent protests across the district. The district coordinator of Strengthening Participatory Organization, Chitral Engineer Taimur Shah was also present on the occasion and he said the organization was working to strengthen the political organization and has provided them with a common platform to solve the local problems.–Zahiruddin]]>
