KARACHI:

Sindh Minister for Information Sharjeel Inam Memon said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has made all-out efforts to influence the courts.

He said, "We strongly consider the assault on the Supreme Court Lahore Registry by the workers of PTI as an attack on the judiciary."

In a statement issued on Tuesday, Sharjeel vehemently said that Imran Khan is trying to influence the state institutions in the country by bullying and hooliganism. He said that Imran has been taking the decisions in his favour for the last five years by pressuring the institutions.

Sindh minister regretted that a fake certificate was awarded to Imran Khan to declare him "Sadiq and Amin". He reiterated that PTI had also taken a stay order on Peshawar Bus Rapid Transit System (BRT) project, while he permitted illegal construction in Bani Gala.

There is a separate law for Imran Khan while the rest of the people are being dealt with by another law in the country, Sharjeel said.

New routes

Sindh Minister for Information and Transport Sharjeel Inam Memon on Tuesday announced another route of the Intra-District Peoples Bus Service (PBS) from July 27.

The PBS buses will operate between Nazimabad’s 5 Star Chowrangi to Shan Chowrangi area of Korangi district. The 33-kilometre-long route 3 passes through KDA Chowrangi, Nazimabad Eidgah, Liaquatabad 10, Isa Nagri, Civic Centre, National Stadium, Karsaz, Nursery, FTC, Korangi Road and KPT Interchange localities of the metropolis.

Under the PBS project, buses were already plying on three routes of the city.

Secretary Transport Abdul Halim Sheikh, Project Director NRTC Soheb Shafiq and others also attended the meeting which decided to conduct a survey for Route No. 11 that covers areas of Boat Basin, American Consulate, Maripur, Keamari and Lyari.
