Chitral-bound tankers filled with fuel from the PSO depot Sihala on March 13 arrived at Dir for crossing the tunnel into Chitral on Saturday/Sunday.
However, they were stopped at Panakot for 12 days and allowed to cross the tunnel on March 24. Some oil tankers arrived after they were allowed to cross the tunnel on contact basis.
The PSO Oil Tankers & Dealers Union Chitral expressed its concern that Pakistan State Oil (PSO) and its contractors and dealers have not let Chitral and the people of Chitral to see/face fuel shortage. The district administration Chitral should also be proud of it.
NHA/tunnel management seems to create crisis in the district bringing bad name of fuel shortage to PSO, District Administration and the PSO Cartage contractors and Dealers in Chitral and this would be very bad and unfair with PSO and its Contractors/Dealers in Chitral.
We, the PSO Cartage Contractors & Dealers Union Chitral, appeal to Deputy Commissioner Chitral to interfere and take it up seriously with high-up in the centre/province and ensure that NHA/tunnel administration should not stop oil tankers at Dir otherwise there shall be a shortage of fuel in the district.
