The Bahrain-Kalam road in Swat has been rebuilt, and the prime minister (PM) Shehbaz Sharif has announced that it is now available for travel.
On Twitter, he made this claim and said that he kept his pledge to flood victims, including stranded domestic and foreign tourists, during his visit to Kalam, that the path had been reopened.
The premier also praised the authorities from the 11 Corps, the National Highway Authority, and the Frontier Works Organization for advancing the road restoration despite difficult circumstances.
In other events, the National Assembly (NA) Standing Committee on Communications requested the NHA yesterday to stop the collection of toll taxes on the roads that have been impacted by the recent flooding.
The members of the committee stated that they were opposed to toll tax collections on the roadways that were impacted by the devastating rains and floods so that aid may be given to flood victims during a meeting presided over by MNA Abdul Ghafoor Wattoo.
