Chitral: Residents of Torkhow Valley have asked the government to expedite the completion of the Booni-Buzund Road, which has been in the works for 15 years.
They protested that the project was not being carried out according to the approved design by the communication and works department. According to them, the road’s allowed width was 28 feet, but it had been cut to 15 feet in steep regions.
According to them, the route not only connected over 150,000 people to the rest of the country, but it was also vital for tourism. They stated that they would not compromise on the project’s quality or quantity.
According to them, the building contractor had stopped working on the road due to a lack of cash. The elders also urged that the National Database and Registration Authority send a mobile team to the region because villagers were having difficulty getting to the nearest office in Booni.
They also demanded the establishment of a revenue tehsil in Torkhow, comprised of two Torkhow union councils and one Terich union council.
