KARACHI: City District Government, Karachi (CDGK) in 2009 had launched a service comprising of 50 CNG buses at the cost Rs250 million, which seems to have gone down the drain as these buses are seen lying abandoned for quite some time.

Residents of Karachi were given the good news two years ago that 50 air-conditioned buses had started serving passengers travelling between Tower, Korangi and Sarjani, but this happy relief from the dreadful transport mafia ruling roost in city, couldn’t last long as these buses were left abandoned wheel-jammed.

Additional EDO Transport, Muhammad Athar said that the contractor to whom the buses were given for plying on contract didn’t fulfill the obligation of maintenance and repair of these buses and left abandoned.

While the Administrator Karachi appears to be ignorant of this situation, who is reported to be looking for loans for buying 200 more buses instead of utilizing the already available buses with some necessary repairs and maintenance.

Residents are of the opinion that the playing of CNG buses had given them some relief from the transport mafia of which they have been deprived as all the 50 buses are lying abandoned in Sarjani Town wasting millions spent on buying them, while the employees including the drivers and the conductors have been rendered jobless. A latest report said that CDGK is looking for a new contractor for running these buses once again.
