Prime Minister of Pakistan, Shehbaz Sharif has officially inaugurated the Metro Bus service from Peshawar Morr to New Islamabad International Airport.
The event was attended by many parliamentarians, and also the Turkish Ambassador in Pakistan, Mustafa Yurdakul. While talking at the inauguration, PM Shehbaz Sharif called the Metro bus a ‘gift’ from PML-N’s Nawaz Sharif for those living in Islamabad. He added that the project was started in 2017, and made functional after just a year in 2018.
However, the PM went on to say that the project was delayed, like other projects after the change in government.
“The thing that was not present was the government’s will to work and serve the masses,” the Premier said.
After being sworn in as the new PM, Shehbaz Sharif has directed to resume and complete the project. The bus service will provide a travel facility of an international level to many passengers on a daily basis.
Prior to this, the incumbent PM also appointed Ahad Khan Cheema to look into the delayed launch of the Metro project. PM Sharif visited Peshawar Mor Metro bus station at 7 am to review the progress. He also announced that the Metro bus will be made free for commuters in Ramzan.
On 10th March, Capital Development Authority (CDA) released a press statement that the third-party pre-shipment inspection of buses had been done in China. The CDA added that a trial run of the project would be conducted in the first week of April.
