MNA submits privilege motion in NA regarding Lowari tunnel

27 Nov, 2018

Chitral: MNA Chitral Molana Abdul Akbar Chitrali has submitted a privilege motion in NA, pleading that on 06 Nov in response to his question in the assembly, the Ministry of communications had assured him that Lowari tunnel has been ordered open for18 hours a day for public transport but after so many days having passed the tunnel is still being opened for 12 hours instead of the declared 18 hours and vehicles are made to wait outside the tunnel for hours and allowed inside the tunnel only in convoys which is against safety rules and is a cause of avoidable suffocation. He pleaded that the privilege motion be accepted and referred to the committee so that the concerned ministry is made to abide by its declaration. .. CN report, 27 Nov 2018

    At least the timing schedule of the tunnel opening should be published in the press and on the NHA website and Deputy Commissioner Chitral website. Travelers in private vehicles don’t know about the tunnel timing and when they arrive at the tunnel find it closed most of the time. Even the regular bus drivers and taxi drivers are not sure about the timings and approach the tunnel on ‘tawakal’.
    At least this can done if nothing else.
