Aam Olas Episode 58



In this episode of Aam Olas, Yousaf Jan Utmanzai visited Jung, where more than 100 years of old railway track is present. This railway track was built by the British government 100 years back but still today it is present which shows how many quality matters to them but now after 100 years this railway track is abundant. In 2006 a violent stream came and the railway track bridge was destroyed. it’s been 16 years by now two-three government completed their tenure but none ever bothered to focus on it. This railway track reaches the Torkham border and a lot of economic trade could happen but this railway track is on the land of Pashtun, who would bother to make Pashtun prosperous.



As mentioned this railway track was built by the British more than 100 years ago but the railway’s department of Pakistan and the Pakistani regime do not bother to do at least the repair. Its first station is in Jamrood, KPK, and was built in 1922. The total quantity of the station till jamrood is 8 which are all now abundant. When Yousaf Jan Utmanzai asked about the funds and repairing of the railway station the railway employee said that the government is not giving any importance and to date, none of the funds are allocated for any of the 8 stations. The employee, there also said that at first there were more than 100 employees but now only 30 remained.

In all walks of life, the Pashtuns are targeted and kept in the darkness. If they could have restored the railway track, this railway track could have earned quite enough in the economic sector but no such thing happened.
