Pakistan’s first electric bus service launched in Sindh: Sharjeel Memon

Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon announced on Friday that the provincial government has launched the country’s “first electric bus service” in Karachi.

In a press conference, he said “we took the lead in starting an electric bus service. It will run from Malir Cantt to Clock Tower Roundabout, Sea View Defence using Khayaban-e-Ittehad.”

“Airport passengers can also avail this bus service for Rs50 per ride. So far, no bus service carries passengers to Jinnah International Airport. I appreciate the Civil Aviation Authority for allowing the electric bus to enter the airport premises.”

He stressed that the bus service was a gift for the people of Karachi and launch of similar projects will continue.

Local bodies elections

Speaking about the Election Commission of Pakistan’s (ECP) rejection of a Sindh government ruling to delay local elections, he said “the ECP has its own rights and so does the government of Sindh.”

“We earlier asked the federal government to utilise army and rangers for lower government elections but the centre told us that the officials were busy fighting terrorism and ECP should provide alternate security.”

“Local government polls in Karachi and rest of Sindh will be held as per the schedule,” said CEC. “Army and rangers officials should be posted at high-risk polling stations for security purposes.”

Buying a bunch of buses and putting them on the road is not something major :lol: I am sure the zardaris fleet of cars is worth more than these.

Jahil family and corrupt PPP needs to be booted out of Sindh so the real work can take place.
More vanity projects just to get your photo on a newspaper story, while ignoring the structural faults and loopholes.

Phir jab koi banda structural par focus karay, to 4 saal baad poochtay hain keh ham nay metro lagayi, tum nay kia kia.
