Karachi needs restoration of circular railway, says JI

KARACHI: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Karachi Chief Engr Hafiz Naeem-ur-Rehman has said that Karachities are in dire need of circular railway.

In a statement on Thursday, the JI leader welcomed the constitution of a high level committee by chief secretary Sindh for restoration of circular railway project in Karachi.

Engr Naeem said that the city had been facing acute shortage of transportation facilities for a long time.

He commented that the prevailing transportation facilities, including Mazda buses are quite insufficient to cater the need of 20 million dwellers of the city.

He said that at least 5000 more big buses are required in the city, so as to reduce the miseries of commuters in Karachi at some reasonable extend.

The JI leader was of the view that the restoration of circular railway has been an impending demand of Karachiites.
