  1. There is no schedule for any tunnel any where in the world. Is this a special tunnel or are the Chitralis a special people? I think the second case is true. Chitralis are a “SPECIAL” people for whom special rules are formulated.

  2. The NHA is only good at issuing schedules and restricting use of tunnel. It is zero in keeping the road open and facilitating travelers. Down with this rogue organisation.
