Villagers Seek Government Help In Clearing Roads After Heavy Snowfall

Villagers Seek Government Help In Clearing Roads After Heavy Snowfall
January 10, 2017

DIR, 10 January: The continuous snowfall in Hayagai area of district Upper Dir has disrupted the day-to-day life of the local residents as they have been restricted to homes due to closure of roads.

Public representatives and elders of the area told TNN on telephone that even after seven days, upto seven feet snow was still laying on the roads but the local authorities particularly the officials of the Communication and Works (C&W) Department were not paying any heed to the problems of the people.

“There are about 800 households in the area and the local dwellers are almost restricted to homes. Since majority of the link roads are closed due to snow, an acute shortage of edibles and other necessary items is created in the area,” Shahab-u-Din Khan, a general councilor, told TNN.

He added that the villagers tried to clear the roads but in vain. “We contacted C&W officials and other elected representatives and apprised them that the local residents have been facing great difficulties due to closure of roads, but nobody helped us,” he complained.

Other elders of the area appealed to the government to move heavy machinery to the area and clear the roads so that they could take sight of relief. They also demanded that electricity supply should also be restored to the area.
