It was not 5% remaining as I already explained. The 95% figure is for 2 sections only.

Exactly like I said, open and empty steel structures. Even the safety rails on the stairs are missing and these are probably the best ones from the time. And even in these you can see steel girders and pipes lying near by to be put onto the station.

These are prefabricated structures can be fabricated within hours.

Buddy without debating whether it takes hours or months, it shows the state of work end the end of PML tenure.

You can ask people living near the line how many months/years it took for the work on these stations to actually be completed from the time of these photos.

The point to ponder is PTI took 4 long years to complete this work ranging from 5% to 20% to be completed.

Point to ponder is they took same amount of time on Peshawar metro but PML where it wanted to, did it in 6-8 month (Lahore Metro).

So while you can blame PTIs project execution it’s the intent that is to blame for PML.

Don't you see the difference?? In Karachi PMLN have to obtain NOC from Sindh Provincial Government which was hellbent to create hurdles of every possible pretext.

Just look at the progress from 2018 where the NOCs were given. Already showed you the status of even the stations. The will was just not there.

By the way, while you are relying on pictures and YouTube videos, I witnessed it with my own eyes and so have many others. You can tag Karachi members and ask them.

Sindh Information and Transport Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon on Saturday announced the launch of the Orange Line Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Service for Karachi after a wait of five years.

The bus service, which will operate on a 3.88-kilometer-long route, will provide connectivity from Orangi Town to the Board Office Chowk traffic intersections, and has been named BRT Abdul Sattar Edhi Line to pay tribute to the late philanthropist.

Speaking at the inauguration ceremony today, Memon said that 20 air-conditioned buses will run on the route, elaborating that there were four bus stations and ticket booths on the route.

The 12-meter long buses are equipped to accommodate 90 passengers at a time, he said, highlighting that nearly 50,000 residents will be able to benefit from the service.

Fares charged from commuters will range between Rs10 and Rs20. “Keeping the financial crises and increasing petrol prices in view, we have reduced the fares so that the common people can benefit from the service,” Memon said.

The minister lauded PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari and Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif for their efforts in the completion of the project.

“They have promised to bring another project for the people of Karachi to facilitate the people and make their lives easier,” he added.

The launch of the service was also attended by Edhi Foundation head Faisal Edhi and provincial ministers Nasir Hussain Shah and Saeed Ghani.

Earlier, in a tweet, Memon said that launch of the services was held in a simple manner because of the floods.
