Pakistan is one of the most polluted countries in the world. With Lahore being the most polluted city in the world now Karachi is giving some competition to Lahore. In recent months, Karachi has, unfortunately, become more polluted with high levels of air and water pollution. But thankfully, the Sindh government is taking some initiatives to counter this problem. Green initiatives to be precise.

Sindh’s Minister of Information and Transport, Sharjeel Memon, has shown interest and intentions to grow the fleet of the Peoples Bus Service in Karachi.

The Announcement 

Now this announcement was made during a ceremony that was originally aimed to introduce a diesel-electric hybrid bus manufactured by Yutong Master Company, Sharjeel Memon then assured foreign investors and the local business community that the Sindh government would fully support them and provide necessary facilities to enhance their capacity and productivity.

At the event, representatives from the local manufacturer presented Minister Memon with the key to a diesel-electric hybrid bus. Sharjeel Memon conveyed the message given by former president Asif Ali Zardari, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, and Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah that public transport has to be modernized throughout Sindh.

He also disclosed plans for the construction of a dedicated bus depot for the transport department, with additional bus depots to be established in the city as per the requirements of the public transport systems. In a recent tweet, he announced that a new fleet of diesel-electric hybrid buses would soon arrive in Karachi, as the model bus has already been received. “The transport department is introducing new transportation projects for the people of Sindh. Insha’Allah (God willing), PPP’s Sindh government will provide maximum transport facilities,” he added.

This initiative will prove to be great for Karachi, especially during these times when pollution and pollution-provoking activities are at their peak. Hopefully, people will also appreciate this and try to keep pollution at a minimum from their side too.
