Chitral -- The positive and efficient way of managing the Lowari
tunnel by the army engineers Frontier Works Organisation (FWO),
in stark contrast to last year, when it was being managed (rather
mismanaged) by the NHA and SAMBU, has received much accolade from
the Chitralis. The intentions and efforts of the soldiers to keep
the Lowari tunnel and it's approach roads open is markedly visible.
In one of the interviews with a TV channel, the in-charge commander
of the engineers said travelers were like family members to him and
he felt happy and satisfied doing his best to alleviate their travel
problems. A number of prominent Chitralis have rung up Chitral
News and requested for putting up a vote of thanks to the FWO
management engaged in looking after the Lowari tunnels.
