Free trans­port for stu­dents

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - SANA ISHAQUE

I am a res­i­dent of a mid­dle class area of Karachi. Now-a-days, es­pe­cially in Karachi, the fare of buses is es­ca­lat­ing reg­u­larly and get­ting be­yond the af­ford­abil­ity of the com­mon masses. This undue hike in trans­port fares is af­fectly mostly the stu­dents of the col­leges and univer­si­ties.

Some stu­dents have fi­nan­cial prob­lems; they want to study but their fi­nan­cial re­sources do not al­low them to con­tinue their stud­ies. The stu­dents gen­uinely need con­ces­sion or ex­emp­tion in pay­ment of trans­port fares to go to their col­leges or univer­si­ties. I re­quest the city au­thor­i­ties, par­tic­u­larly the Mayor of Karachi, to kindly in­ter­vene and help out the poor stu­dents. —Via email
