The University of Sindh administration has appealed to the government of Sindh to provide the best travel facilities to over 60,000 students and more than 7,000 employees of the three Universities of Jamshoro by including Sindh University in the route of the People's Bus Service starting from Hyderabad this month.
According to a statement issued here by the Sindh University spokesperson Nadir Ali Mugheri, the SU administration said that by the end of November, the People's Bus Service was being launched in Hyderabad by the provincial government, which was a matter of happiness, but the University of Sindh Jamshoro must also be included as stopover in the route of People’s Bus Service.
The spokesman further said that the first route of the People's Bus Service had been selected from Hyder Chowk to Hattri Thana, which will have 15 stops but Jamshoro especially the University of Sindh should also be added to this route as the last stopover.
He said that the People’s Bus Service will have to pass through Hyder Chowk, Gul Center, Thandi Sarak, Agriculture Complex, Wahdat Colony, Sindh Museum, Qasim Chowk, Jail Road, ISRA Hospital and Hattri Police Station but the buses could further be plied en route to SU, which was almost 13kms away from Hattri, adding that the service could make headway from Hattri via bypass to Honda Palace, Al Manzar, Jamshoro phattak to SU’s Institute of Sindhology gate.
“If the Peoples Bus Service makes its stopover at the main entrance of the Institute of Sindhology in Jamshoro, it will benefit 42,000 students and more than 3,000 employees of the University of Sindh and overall 60, 000 students of all three varsities”, the statement said.
He said that the purpose of starting the People's Bus Service was to serve the poor people, therefore, the best travel facilities must be provided to a total of 60,000 students of all three varsities, including 42,000 poor students of the University of Sindh.
The spokesman said that plying the People's Bus Service on the Jamshoro route will generate good revenue, by which the said bus service will continue to function in a more efficient manner.
According to the spokesman, more than 60,000 young people studying at Sindh University, Liaquat Medical University and Mehran Engineering University are the future architects of the Sindh province and the country and they must be considered for the bus service.
The University of Sindh administration strongly appealed to the Chief Minister Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah to provide the best travel facilities to more than 60 thousand students and more than 7 thousand employees of all three Universities of Jamshoro and help reduce the financial burden of the University of Sindh in terms of transportation.
