HAVELIAN: Debris of PK-661 has been strewn on a Havelian hillside for the past two weeks since no road led to the crash site.

However, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) MPA Sardar Orangzeb Nalotha on Monday said he was granting money to build a two kilometre stretch of road till crash site so that the debris can be removed.

While speaking to the media on Monday, Nalotha said that it was not possible to collect debris of the Pakistan International Airline’s crashed ATR-42 since there was no metaled road on which trucks and other vehicles could access the site.

While criticising the provincial government for its failure to build a road in the area, he said that he was personally granting funds to build the road in light of the significance of the tragedy.  He added that work on the road would be finished in a week.

Arshad Hussain | 4 years ago | Reply Yes ! That's the Ruling! Make road to remove debris. But don't make roads in the big cities for people needing that. Where roads are already ruined and going to be ruin soon.
