In a statement issued here on Tuesday, former nazim Umer Gul and social activists of Jabbi, including Najmal Shah, Zafarullah Khan and others, said digging work had started on the five-kilometre-long dirt road a month ago.

They said due to digging rolling stones continued to fell from mountains, thus making passage on the road dangerous. The elders said during rains the dug up road turned into pools of mud, creating trouble for commuters.
