High Politics : Saach Pass Opens For Elections

A winter with low snow levels and the upcoming elections means that the opening of Saach Pass may be preponed (lovely Hinglish expression) before June :

“Though the highway is officially opened for vehicular traffic in the first week of June every year, now with the announcement of election schedule efforts would be made to reopen the highway in advance before the prescribed date so that transportation services could be resumed,”

Swedish trekker henko went over the pass last year in July (photo below) , and mentions snow stiil being cleared from the road. Haven´t been able to pin down the actual opening date.
