  1. salaam to every one thanks to Govt of Pakistan if you ask me which name we should give Dangali bridge that should be founder of AJK PPP Per Ali Jan Shah bridge or Ch Mohammad Zaman of mora kanyal or Raj Dalawal khan.
    Abrar shah Dadyal

  2. aslaam o alikum to every one and thanks to those help to fulfil the wish of the peapol of dadyal . ajk ppp or ppp has done no thing for this bridge .so.it should not have been name after gilani or any other ppp leader . gilani has promise other projects and if they complet them ,then they can be named after gilani,zardari, ali jan shah etc.

  3. Daddy Dadyal says:

    Mohammad Sheeraz – I completely agree with you. The government of Pakistan and the people of Pakistan deserve no credit whatsoever for the completion of this bridge. This bridge was built due to the hard work, commitment and generous donations of the hard working overseas British Pakistanis like myself. Now the Pakistan government want to claim the credit for his bridge but before when we asked them for help and funds, they completely ignored us. Also well done to the people of Dadyal without whom this project would not have been possible and also a big thank you to the Chinese because they have built us a beautiful and strong bridge which will last forever Inshallah. Unfortunately our people cannot build a bridge like this so we had to ask the Chinese. We can only build a bridge like the old dangali bridge.
