The Supreme Court (SC) Thursday on gave four weeks to restructure the Pakistan Railways on the request of the Planning Commission.
Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Gulzar Ahmed heard the suo motu case regarding losses incurred by the Pakistan Railways. Along with orders of restructuring the railways to the Planning Commission, the apex court also sought a progress report on the circular railway from the Sindh government and the provincial railway department.
“The bridge built by the British at Kotri is still in good condition, while the Karachi-Hyderabad bridge could collapse at any moment,” CJP Ahmed said. “There is no bridge on the Indus that the nation can be proud of.”
The chief justice added that bridges constructed during Ayub Khan’s era were still in better condition, whereas, all bridges built afterwards in the country are not in the best condition. "Good bridges should be built for Main Line-1 (ML-1)."
