of the academic year and those who don't apply for the facility also enjoy it
and cause trouble for others.
The students informed about a bus for the
girls doing master's programme in Mass Communication that remains standing all
the time and the girls also travel by other six buses. " People make fun of us
and laugh at us on roads when they see us standing in the buses so close and
with conductor in a miserable condition" one of the students remarked.
are students who get a chance to sit on the bus seats only during Eid days when
most of the students go back to their homes in other cities and seats are empty

they are also those students whose periods are finished earlier they keep their
bags and books on the seats and others who finish late are always compelled to
