FG Margalla College buses overcrowded

Islamabad, Sept 22: The overcrowded buses of F.G. Margalla College for Women, F-7/4, have become a matter of concern for the people on roads who see the students' lives plead in an extremely dangerous situation which can become the cause of an accident any time.

Standing in an overcrowded bus that is stuck in a traffic jam is routine for the students of Margalla College. But in the holy month of Ramazan it is unbearable for them.

The buses are severely congested with the students seen standing near the door alongwith the conductor.

Frequently the students are stopped from boarding the bus when the driver tells them that there is no place for more students and tyres of the bus will be punctured if more students enter. The Left out students have to wait for second trip about two hours till the bus returns after leaving all the students at their houses.

The college has only six buses, which is not sufficient for the students, as most of the students prefer to travel by the college buses. Each bus is assigned to pick and drop the students of two sectors. But the poor planning of the administration has overburdened a number of buses as compared to few others.

Sector G-6 and G-7 are heavily populated areas and the residents are mostly government servants and belong to the middle class who cannot afford their own transport. Despite this fact only one bus covers these two sectors, which is not sufficient. On the other hand comparatively bigger buses give pick and drop to the students of the posh sectors and are not as overloaded as the bus of sectors G-6 and G-7.

It's important to mention here that teachers also avail the transport facility of the college and it is out of respect the students leave their seats for teachers and remain standing all the time. The students demand that the teachers should be provided separate transport facility by the College.

Although, the students pay about a thousand rupees transport fee and the administration issues bus cards but this exercise starts in the middle 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.

There 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 otherwise they travel all the year without sitting on moving bus.

Moreover, 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 stand.The Nation
