KARACHI: Karachi’s transport mafia has repeatedly sabotaged the circular railroad project in the city for a long time. Many governments have tried to re-initiate the project but things never move forward because the transport lobby manages to get its way each time.
Details of meetings on the matter are never disclosed and Karachiites are largely in the dark over the future of this much-needed project that would not just provide relief to commuters but would also lessen traffic on the roads. The red tape surrounding this project must be eliminated and it must be initiated in a transparent manner without the interference of the corrupt and exploitative transport mafia.
