Islamabad

Of the 70 buses to be purchased for the government schools and colleges in the Islamabad Capital Territory under the Prime Minister’s Education Sector Reforms Programme, five have reached the Capital Administration and Development Division (CADD).

The CADD regulating the ICT educational institutions through the Federal Directorate of Education will get another fleet of five buses in the next few days, an official in the know told ‘The News’.

Currently, the FDE schools and colleges are short of buses by and large to the misery of their students, especially those living in far-off areas.

The official said those educational institutions would get 70 buses under the PM Education Sector Reforms Programme watched over by the prime minister’s daughter, Maryam Nawaz, through a committee comprising some MNAs and FDE officials.  

He said the school buses were 60-65 seaters and diesel-powered ones with the minimum 7,800cc engine.
