MANDI BAHAUDDIN - The residents of Union Council Shahidanwali, Lakhnewala Mandi, Chak Fateh Shah, Nai Shahidanwali, Rakh Baloch villages have been yearning for the construction of 15-km Shahidanwali-Mandi Bahauddin Road which is the only way that links the remote area with Mandi Bahauddin markets.

Although they have approached time and again the local political leaders and government officials for construction of road to end their hardships they face while travelling on the route but everthing has turned out to be in in vain.

Aslam Warriach, Ijaz Ahmed, Advocate Afzal, Akram Gondal, Amanullah and residents of the area said that the road that runs along Chelianwala Rajbah up to Lakhnewala then turns toward north in the direction of Village 8/RD was constructed by Gen Musharraf regime and later repaired towards the end of his rule. Thereafter, no repairing and maintenance work was done to keep the road traffic worthy. Now it has completely destroyed and it is difficult to drive or travel on it.

They urged the DCO to consider the plight of residents of Union Council Shahedawali and order construction of the road on priority basis.
