Traffic police say no to Qing qi routes
KARACHI: Karachi Traffic Police have strongly opposed 71 route permits devised by Sindh Transport Department for resuming Qing Qi rickshaw in city, said DIG Traffic Dr Amir Ahmed Shaikh while talking to PPI yesterday.
The DIG Amir said that it is the prime duty of traffic police to regulate traffic flow in right direction in the city so the Sindh Transport Department should take us on board for devising routes for Qing-qis as the present draft of routes could lead to massive traffic jams everywhere in the city if these makeshift bike-rickshaws are allowed to ply on these routes in the city.
Dr Amir said they have somehow controlled traffic flow on city’s all roads so it would not be allowed to anyone to demolish the traffic plans that are being implemented in the city. He said that they have already asked Sindh Transport Department’s authorities to constitute a committee comprising of officials concerned and representatives from Sindh Transport Department, Karachi Traffic Police. —PPI
