Schoolchildren suffer because of strike

LAHORE, May 17(Daily Times): Schoolchildren were greatly affected by Wednesday's strike of two-stroke rickshaws, especially those who had hired rickshaws to go to school. Parents complained that they had to take their children to school themselves because their hired rickshawalas did not show up. Mohammed Usman, a resident of Shadbagh, said that he had to go to Shadman on his motorcycle to drop his son in school at 7am, return home in Shadbagh and go to his office in Gulberg at 9am. He said he had to repeat this exercise at 1:30pm when he had to pick his son from school, drop him home and return to his office. Zarmina, a student of class five at the Queen Mary School, said she could not go to school due to the strike. Her mother said, "Four girls go with Zarmina on the same rickshaw. They could not attend school". Nayab, a class seven student, also complained about lack of transport. Faiza, a resident of Samanabad and a student of Fatima Jinnah Medical College, said she could not get a rickshaw or van and reached college late. She said that she could not get transport to return home and had to call her brother to pick her up.
