ISLAMABAD: The government schools and colleges of Federal Capital have halted the transportation facility for poor students using buses to and from schools and colleges owing to the lack of funds for fuel.
The inner sources have revealed that the transport service for children at the educational institutions in the federal capital has once again been terminated. Currently, the bus service of colleges including Islamabad Model College for Boys F-8/4 and Islamabad Model College for Girls F-7/4 have stopped their bus service owing to the shortage of funds for fuel (diesel).
Meanwhile, Caretaker Federal Minister for Education and Professional Training Mr. Madad Ali Sindhi took notice of this issue and sought a report in this respect.
Sources further stated that buses of more colleges will also be stopped from Monday, while most of the children of colleges in Islamabad may be deprived of transportation facilities from next week.
On the other hand parents viewed that at a time when the academic session is about to middle and students mid examination are going to be held in the next month October, it is cruel to end the transport facility. “At present, the private vehicles are also not available, due to which serious difficulties have arisen for us,” they lamented.
They urged upon the Caretaker Federal Minister for Education and Professional Training Madad Ali Sindhi to take this matter seriously and solve it without any delay.
