 Lowari pass closure, voters facing difficulties to reach their constituency


Voters of Chitral feeling extreme difficulty during access to their constituencies due to closure of Lawari Pass which is single road providing all time access to Chitral. Under the schedule date NHA should open this road at first week of April in each year to facilitate easy access of people to Chitral. Recently Lawari tunnel is opened only three days on weakly basis and in the remaining days Chitral remain disconnected from rest of the country and people of the area are in serious hardship these days. During winter season majority of Chitrali population migrate to down country, Peshawar, Lahore and
Karachi for earning purpose and return to Chitral in summer season. Recently large number of Chitrali voters are trying to arrive in their constituency and cast their vote but closure of lawari pass is the main obstacle on their way. We appealed to District Administration Chitral, as well as other responsible officials but no tangible efforts has been made to open Lawari Pass road by NHA before election day. As last resort people of Chitral directly appeal to your kind honor to Order NHA for opening Lawari Pass road before May 11, 2013 election day. So that voters of Chitral could be able to cast their vote in their respective constituency.
