    Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi rajeeoon...

    What the CM should do is fix the traffic laws and put new drivers on probation for 1 yr...It will make them drive like human long enough to make it a habit!

    Only a stupid parent would send their child in a rickshaw or a Mehran to school.

    Stupid parents.

    There is always a choice for safety. Pakistani culture doesn't give it importance.

    I bet these parent spent money on attending weddings but but their kids lives at risk. Now they suffer. Idiots.

    The vehicle does not fulfill basic road safety requirements.

    The government is not a tool for expressing grief or any other emotions. It is for finding practical solutions.

    But He is still handsome. So i wanna say '' No Prime Minister in history of Pakistan has done this ''
