KARACHI: Following the arrival of 40 buses for the Green Line BRT project, the Sindh government has also announced to bring 50 buses to Karachi under a provincial-funded transport project.
The announcement was made by Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Mukesh Kumar Chawla while responding to a query from Opposition Leader in Sindh Assembly Haleem Adil Shaikh during the assembly session.
Sheikh said that the Chief Minister and the Minister of Transport have repeatedly claimed to bring buses to Karachi, but their promises have not been fulfilled.
“When will the Orange Line project be inaugurated,” he asked while mentioning that the federal government has fulfilled its promise with Karachiites, bringing 40 buses to Karachi yesterday while 40 more will be brought in the next few days.
In response, Chawla stated that they will bring 50 buses to Karachi under the Orange Line BRT project.
On Sunday, a cargo ship carrying a batch of Green Line buses from China was parked at Karachi Port. The cargo ship was unloaded from there after the Governor of Sindh and the Federal Minister attended the ceremony.
