CHITRAL: Federal Minister for Communication Arbab Alamgir has
said that several other mega projects would be launched in
Chitral after the completion of Lowari Tunnel to pave the way
for prosperity of the people.
Addressing the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) workers on Monday,
he said two more major projects including linking of the Shandur
Road with the Karakoram Highway to connect the area with China
and construction of Chitral-Tajikistan Road through Durah Pass
were in the pipeline. He said these projects would not only
change the destiny of Chitral but also of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
The minister said that two and a half kilometres approach road
for the Lowari Tunnel would be completed by September this year.
He said the party was in power due to the matchless sacrifices
of its leaders Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Benazir Bhutto.
Arbab said the government had been struggling hard for the last
two years to eradicate militancy and terrorism from the country,
adding that peace would be restored in all the restive areas
