KARACHI: Karachi’s transport mafia, also named ‘Mini Bus Mafia’, is now been the victim of concerns and mental reservation after the Chief Minister Sindh approval for Karachi Circular Railway (KCR).
According to sources, the ‘Mini Bus Mafia’ officials have been alerted and started contacting the nearer governmental relationships to freeze the plan in order to counter the ‘futuristic problem’, which could be created by the KCR setup.
Previously, the transport mafia has always counteracted for the circular railway project in the metropolitan city of Pakistan by covered and uncovered manner.
Chief Minister Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah has approved circular railway project today which brightened chances for the revival of proposed Mass Rapid Transit System for Karachi but fiercely scared the local transporters around Karachi.
The decision would definitely end up the monarchy of the transport mafia and lessen the illegal grip of transport associations around the Karachittes, who are ever-been victims of them.
KCR project much-needed project that would not just provide relief to commuters as it is proved as quiet less cost effective as compare to local buses but would also lessen traffic on the roads.
However, the future of this project is in dark till now as travelers seen such scenes and announcements by previous government but they never take it to the successful endings.
The government should come up with a strict stance towards the transporters and should end their monopoly in the city which provide 70 percent of the total revenue of the country.
