CLOSURE OF LOWARI TUNNEL FOR TRUCKERS ON SATURDAY & SUNDAY.

Closure of Lowari Tunnel for truckers is unjust with the people of Chitral. The practice last year and this year has been to have tunnel open for 2 days in a week (Saturday and Sunday) until the opening of Lowari Pass. NHA/Tunnel management are all very responsible persons but played very irresponsibly with the people of Chitral stopping all truckers in Dir for about 14 days in March 2015. They should not have done it when they very much know the problems of shortage of essential commodities, source of earning of poor men and specially fuel which is the life blood for the economy and for the living of the people of Chitral. It is again very bad on the part of the management that some truckers are allowed on contact basis. It is further said that some oil tankers were allowed to cross the tunnel in the name of SAMBU but sold in pumps. Dealer of a pump in Parwak reported that his pump is dry from March 15 and has brought fuel from Mastuj Pump where fuel is delivered regularly. It is, therefore, suggested that fuel for SAMBU should be lifted from PSO Depot Chitral. Moreover, NHA/Tunnel management should now inform PSO Cartage Contractors Chitral through PSO Depot not to issue indent for lifting fuel from Sihala if Tunnel is closed for oil tankers on Saturday and Sundays. The fuel shortage and problem thereof shall be the responsibility of NHA and the District Administration Chitral. PSO Cartage Contractors & Dealers Union Chitral.
