Summer or winter, agonies of Chitralis continue at Lowari

UPPER DIR, June 8: Hundreds of passenger and goods carrying vehicles have been stranded from the past three days at Daro Khwar area of Lowari because of blockage at the unpaved part of Dir-Chitral road passing through a stream. LOWARIThe road was opened to traffic last month but the condition of its unpaved part at the stream, locally known as Daro Khwar, could not be improved to make it fit for use, particularly for heavy traffic. Dir-Chitral Goods Transport Association office-bearers and stranded passengers also protested at the Daro Khwar area and warned the authorities of launching a strike if the road was not cleared. The protesting passengers and transporters chanted slogans against the National Highway Authority and urged the government to immediately restore the condition of part of the road passing through a stream.]]>
