AWI: People of Awi, Meragram No 1 and Sonoghur have welcomed the allocation of Rs19 million for the construction and widening of the road from Booni to these villages, a participant told ChitralToday.
At a meeting held here, the local people said by allocating the fund, MPA Hidayatur Rehman had fulfilled the long-standing demand of the villagers.
They said for decades, the road could not be repaired, especially after the Chitral-Mastuj road was diverted to the Parwak side. Moreover, the road has been narrowed by encroachments in different areas.
The participants of the meeting said the fund should be utilized in consultation with the locals on the improvement of the road particularly at its narrow and hilly points to make it safe for travel.
They also said that from NADRA office in Booni to Ishperu Der the road was already wide and the fund should be utilized for widening of the road from Ishperu Der to Awi, Meragram and Sonoghur.–Sher Afgan
