KARACHI: Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon on Wednesday hinted at expanding fleet of the Peoples Bus Service being run in Karachi and other parts of the province as the provincial government was making a deal with a local manufacturer of diesel-electric hybrid buses.

At a ceremony to launch the diesel-electric hybrid bus produced by Yutong Master Company, Mr Memon, who also holds the portfolio of transport and mass transit, assured the foreign investors and local business community that the Sindh government would ensure every possible support and facility to enhance their capacity and output.

“There’s a clear direction from our party chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari and Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah to modernise the public transport services in all cities and districts of Sindh,” he said.
