Chitral: The people of Chitral in general and the intelligentsia in particular have demanded that the two districts of Chitral should be named according to their original names i.e Chitral and Mastuj districts. The newly named Lower Chitral and Upper Chitral districts lack culture and are bland and crude way of naming an area known for it’s rich culture and tradition. The district bar association has presented a resolution on this and senior lawyers have all demanded to correct the names of the two districts in their true perspective. .. CN report, 07 May 2019
Chitral: Even after two weeks having passed since Chief Justice of Pakistan took suo motu notice of the denial of Lowari tunnel to travelers, the situation remains unchanged at the torture site (tunnel). Vehicles are halted for no rhyme or reason on one excuse or the other and travelers are tormented as if that is a part of the tunnel package. Even when the tunnel opens vehicles are allowed one way which is ridiculous and causes unnecessary pile up of vehicles at the mouth of the tunnel. No where in the world is a two way tunnel used as one way.
Chitralis eagerly await publication of the result of the suo motu notice of the tunnel problem taken by the Chief Justice of Pakistan. .. CN report, 29 Sep 2018
