Mansehra: Chairman of the Torghar district development advisory committee and MPA Laiq Mohammad Khan on Wednesday inaugurated work on the Rs240 million Judbah-Thakot Road.


“The construction of this highly important artery will bring positive changes in the lives of the locals as it will link the latter with Hazara Expressway and Karakoram Highway in Thakot area,” the lawmaker told the project inaugural ceremony in Judbah area.


Laiq Muhammad Khan said that the chief minister on his demand released an amount of Rs240 million for this important communication project.


“The successive government kept Torghar deprived of prosperity and development and the ANP government gave this erstwhile tribal belt of Mansehra the status of a settled district in 2011. And now I have been striving for its prosperity and development,” the MPA said. Moreover, the Chairman stated that has been fighting long for the development and prosperity of the Torghar district. He also mentioned that at his request the Chief Minister has allocated PKR 240 million for the project.
