  1. Dear Sir,

    Due to high price of Petrol day by day, the Pakistani citizen are facing great difficulties.
    There is one suggestion, some countries are using Battery Bicycles which are very very economical than Petrol using.
    Why not the local dealer of Bicycle purchase the Battery Bicycle.
    This type Bicycle go 100km and after that charge at home normal light means electricity like we charge the emergency light .
    the battery Bicycle also chargeable.
    I think is very good for the people of Pakistan.
    This type Battery Bicycle available in China Market from RMB 1400 to maximum RMB3000/-
    Maximum people of Chinese use the Battery Bicycle.
    Battery Bicycle speed 30Km per hour.
    The normal/middle class citizen of Pakistan can easily buy battery bicycle and solve their transport problem for ever
    on the otherhand the burden of Petorl is less on the government.

    Hope my suggestion may be considered for the betterment of the citizen of Pakistan.

  2. Anyone know when will that scheme of 37000 houses will start? what will be the covered area? what will be the prices and will the houses be build by govt. or they will sell plots only?
