If billions of rupees spent on jangla bus were utilized on hospitals and education then future of coming generations would have been safe and better today: Ch Parvez Elahi

People of Multan themselves are wondering they do not need metro but ventilators and medicines in hospitals and education

Instead of spending crores of rupees on publicity of jangla bus in newspapers and on channels it would have been better if basic facilities were provided to the people
