Long Queues …!

long queues in waiting

As, the sun rises or sets, such queues of people waiting for a public transport vehicle is a common sight in Islamabad … with no bus service available to run inter-city since the varaan scandal. Moving around is still a big problem with ever-increasing rates of Petrol and Gas and as a result taxi rents.
