ISLAMABAD:


The Punjab metro bus authority has decided to get helicams — drones fitted with cameras — to keep an eye on the construction work of metro bus project. The only problem is that they forgot to consult security officials.


The helicams will monitor the work and videos will be sent to the chief minister through video link.


Project Implementation Committee Chairman Hanif Abbasi said the project would be completed in due time and no compromise would be made on the quality of construction work.


While talking to The Express Tribune, he said that no laxity or negligence over the construction work would be tolerated and all departments including CDA, Sui Northern Gas Company, Iesco and PTCL should liaison for shifting their services.


Meanwhile, an Islamabad Capital Territory Administration said the use of helicams would not be allowed due to security concerns.

Where is the money for all this coming from? Why is this happening to us and why are we taking all this? Zulm ki hukoomat chal rahi hai. Allah keep us safe from these people. Prayers are all we have left, if I a middle class person can feel such feelings and frustration Allah knows what the poor go through. This government has put so many issues on us with the load shedding , the lack of jobs, the price hike of almost everything that we don't even take notice of these people robbing us blind. How much more do they need and when will they every stop.
