Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has inaugurated mega project of Rawalpindi-Islamabad Metro Bus Service on Thursday. According to the claims bus service would provide hassle free, comfortable and economical travelling facility to the residents of the twin cities. A dedicated signal-free track of 23 kilometer has been constructed between Islamabad Secretariat to Saddar Rawalpindi with 24 stations equipped with modern facilities to facilitate the commuters of twin cities.
At the time of construction of this mega project, it was pledged that it would be completed in ten months span of time. But completion of the project took fifteen months, residents of the twin cities were affected very badly for the delay.
At the time of inauguration most of the roads of Islamabad were blocked because Prime Minister and Chief Ministers were present in Islamabad for inauguration of the bus service.
It is a good omen that government has provided a comfortable traveling facility to the people. But on the day of inauguration most of the roads of Islamabad were blocked, resulted in massive traffic jam in such a way that ambulances were stuck. In civilized countries, they have established great infrastructures, but they do not spend millions of rupees on advertisements.
Here, our leaders are celebrating inauguration in such a way that we have conquered something extraordinary. We are a society facing countless issues, but the way Prime Minister and Chief Minister made the inauguration it looks like that we have tackled all the issues of healthcare facilities, lack of education, unemployment.
Most of all we are a nation fighting a war against terrorism, but from the behaviours of our political leaders it seems that we have no more threat of terrorism and masses are no more in danger of insecurity.
