Snow Cleared from Lowari Top, Road Opened to Chitral

Snow Cleared from Lowari Top, Road Opened to Chitral
DROSH, May 1: Closed for almost 3 months the land route connecting Chitral to the rest of country opened early Thursday. After opening of Lowari Top road passenger vehicles and vehicles laden with edible items including vegetable and fruits have reached Chitral. Pak Army 104 Engineering Battalion had also displayed intimation banners in different parts of Chitral. However it would take some more day for the heavy vehicles. Now the people of Chitral have got rid of the humiliating schedule of Lowari Tunnel.
It should be noted that few days back the social and political elites of Drosh had demanded the concern authorities to remove snow from Lowari top road and open it for vehicular traffic otherwise they would stage protest campaign. Later on different political and religious parties also demanded immediate opening of Lowari top.
It is worthy to mention that this year Lowari top road was open even during the month of January due to hard work of Army engineering battalion which was highly appreciated by the masses. (C.P)
