I fail to understand why is the Lowari tunnel not being opened for travelers on daily basis when the pass has blocked. Is formal inauguration by the prime minister more important or usage by thousands of stranded travelers every day carries more weight.
The Chowni bridge in Chitral town was started and finished in a few months by Japanese without any inauguration or completion ceremony. One fine day vehicles were using the bridge, no formal ceremony, no pm, no cm, no mna, no mpa, no nazim, no nonsense only work and it’s practical result.
There is no harm if the tunnel opening ceremony is delayed or not held at all but it is important that travelers are allowed to use the tunnel every day from dawn to dusk during these three months. Work inside the tunnel can be carried out at night while work outside the tunnel can carry on during the day.
There is no rocket science involved in this. Nor do you have to be intelligent to understand it. Only reason is the spineless representatives who can’t take a stand as much like the people who elect them. — Shareef Ahmad, Chitral 12 Dec 2016.
