Work on protecting Chitral-Mastuj road against river erosion begins

CHITRAL, Feb 15: To protect Chitral-Mastuj road as well as Denin Lasht and cultivable land near the district jail Chitral, the construction of a bund and spurs was launched here on Saturday.

The Chitral Integrated Area Development Programme (CIADP) has allocated/ 7.1 million rupees for the project which is being executed through the technical support of the Creative Approach for Development (CAD). In this connection, a function was held near the bank of Chitral River where the DC Chitral operated a bulldozer to remove sand and debris for the excavation of the land.

Program coordinator CIADP Asfandiyar Khan said the district government had recommended this project. Some local people said their cultivable land and standing crops were damaged by flood in 2010. The flood also damaged the Booni road.

The houses are still under threat if a protection wall was not built on time.–GH Farooqui
