CHITRAL; The residents of Mastuj Khas town cleared the Mastuj-Yarkhoon road of snow avalanches in more than six points of the hilly terrain and opened the road for vehicular traffic on self-help basis.
A resident of the village Mohammad Shami told Chitral Times on telephone that the blockade of the road has not only disconnected the Mastuj Khas village from the rest of the district but the union councils of Laspur and Yarkhoon leading to Baroghil affected.
He said that the youth folk of the village spent three days in the clearance of the snow avalanche using their own gadgets while food to the workers was also provided by the villagers.
He said that led by the headmaster of the local high school, Haji Murad Khan the youth worked enthusiastically from dawn to dusk with breaks of short interval for meals in the afternoon.
He said that the road had been closed for the last two weeks due to the snowfall and they had to wait for the slipping down of the avalanches from the high mountainous terrains.
