Don't fail the Byepass
I'm saying this because I've seen it happening before, not once but
The recently inaugurated Chitral bazaar Byepass road by the
Chief Minister is set to start off on a wrong foot. The
executers have decided to start work at the Chew bridge with
cutting of the hill.
Even a blind person can see that there is
neither any Bazaar, nor congestion at the chew
bridge and cutting the hill is only meant to exhaust the fund on
a useless (but profitable for the executers) pursuit, and fail
the road for lack of funds when it reaches the congested area
where it is actually required.
The bazaar road between Kruprisht and Polo ground is extremely
congested and a torture for both vehicles and pedestrians.
It needs to be addressed before any window
dressing elsewhere. The chew bridge hill cutting
should be the last priority and can be done at the end, if funds
I hope the conscientious residents of
Chitral will not remain silent spectators and oversee a wrong
practice without interfering. Rather I hope people with
conscience would actively come forward and check malpractices
the brunt of which eventually the poor people have to bear.
