KARACHI (92 News) – Prime Minister Imran Khan inaugurated Green Line bus service in Karachi on Friday.

The prime minister was briefed about the 21km project. Initially, the buses will run from Sarjani Town to Chowrangi. The service will also stop at Agha Khan Road, Aurangzeb Market, Merry Weather and Port Trust.

Addressing the ceremony, Prime Minister Imran Khan said that Karachi is the growth engine of Pakistan that runs the entire country. "To make Karachi prosperous is to make the country prosperous," he added.

He said that the country gets most of the revenue from Karachi, but no one paid attention to the transport of the city.

The prime minister said that the government is fulfilling the promises made with Karachi. He offered the Sindh government to jointly work on the Bundle Island.

"The foundation stone of K-IV project will be laid after approval. In Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, each citizen has a health card. In Punjab, each citizen will have health insurance by March this year. Balochistan is also agreed on the Health Card. The Sindh government should also work on the Health Card," he maintained.

Speaking on the occasion, Federal Minister for Planning Asad Umar said that the Sindh government should not give blood to Karachi, but its right. "The Sindh government could not purchase vaccine for the people. From where it will bring money for buses. They thought that the bus service will be run by erecting a fence," he maintained.

He said that Green Line bus service will start from December 25.
