TURBAT: People are fed up with the transport system in Turbat, especially students who have to travel long distances to reach their respective educational institutions.
Several students travel from one city to another in order to get a quality education as they cannot get adequate education in their own cities, like Turbat.
Hence, many students travel to Quetta for the purpose, but the current transport system acts as a hurdle. Students have to pay at least Rs1,500 to travel to Quetta. Superior or National Testing Services tests are also mostly conducted in Quetta because of which an aspiring candidate has to travel or miss the opportunity. And majority of the students face difficulties in paying this cost. Therefore, the Balochistan government needs to look into the matter and ensure affordable and accessible transport system.
