Hundreds of buckets are operated with cable wires or ropes to access other areas in Bataghram, Kohistan Upper, Lower, and Koli Palis. The Deputy Commissioners have been instructed to inspect local chairlifts/dollies in all districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. There were also reports from all the districts wherein people were using chairlifts, caused problem due to closures with many areas also complaining that they are facing food shortages. Local dollies are used to access other villages, schools, markets in mountainous areas and mostly children are unable to go to school due to lift closure.
