    Why do we have a separate thread for this?? Is having BRTS system considered a big achievement in Pakistan??? This is not even metro just simple Brts system. Nothing special.

    I agree with you:tup:

    But instead of posting pics of just one bus can you post some imp imfo about the entire Lahore Brts system. That would be helpful for members to see ho good this system is.

    While I don't know anything about this bus system, I do know that incompetent PMLN has put it in it's place.
    This means that it was ill thought out, it will be ill managed, and probably end up in a corruption scandle in a year or so ultimatly leading to it being discontinued and Tax payers on the hook for millions of rupees.

    Sorry i don't want to indulge into political discussion & always try my best to avoid it, but the same was said when MM was completed, leaving political rivalry apart one should give credit where its due... :)

    MM was a good job, I will always say that
    But other than that what else do they have to show for 25 years of governance?

    And I am sorry if it sounds like political point scoring but the record is there. Pakistan needs institutions right now more than anything else. Buses and roads can wait until we have a corruption free government with rule of law.
