  1. It is in fact the ineptitude of political leadership in particular and district administration in general. Since, construction, these roads have been left unrepaired. Every now and then one has to negotiate dangerous turns while travelling on these pathetic dilapidated roads. Politically, Chitralis have been rendered orphan. Even at a distant future there is no possiblity that the condition of roads might get improved. Our political leadership is busy in leg pulling of their rivals and are least about public service like construction of roads, provision of clean drinking water, food and shelter.
    In this scenario the only viable option is that people must boycott tourism, other cultural events like shandur festival, kalash festival unless govt improves infrastructure.
