Sindh Rejects Rs. 2 Billion Demand for Rangers, Gives Rs. 3.3 Billion to Schools

The caretaker government of Sindh has turned down a proposal, seeking Rs. 2 billion for Rangers to procure vehicles and anti-riot gear, including water cannons and communication equipment.

According to details, the proposal was presented by the provincial home department, informing the cabinet about the requirements of the paramilitary force. The home department stated that rangers need Rs. 2 billion for anti-riot gear, as they support the Sindh police in crowd management.

Furthermore, the cabinet was also informed about the need to increase the operational capacity of the Rangers due to the upcoming general elections. However, the cabinet decided against providing the requested funds and instead allocated Rs. 357 million for buying anti-riot gear and vehicles.

On the other hand, the cabinet approved Rs. 3.3 billion for the repair of around 9,900 school buildings in different districts of the province, including 1,015 in Karachi, 4,520 in Hyderabad and 4,366 in Sukkur.

These school buildings have been identified as the appropriate locations for setting up polling stations during the upcoming general elections.

According to the school education department, the concerned deputy commissioners and executive engineers of these districts chose the schools for polling stations. However, their repair and maintenance would cost Rs. 3.3 billion, which was approved by the cabinet.

After the approval of the cabinet, sources told a media outlet that it would take weeks for the education department to get the money in its accounts. Additionally, the tendering process is also expected to take some time, leaving minimal time for the completion of the repair work.

Hi-Speed Motorcycles to Launch Electric Bikes in Pakistan

After Yadea officially launched its first electric bike in Pakistan, another Chinese electric bike manufacturer, TAILG, is set to introduce its bikes in the local market.

The Chinese company recently announced its partnership with Hi-Speed Motorcycles to introduce and market its electric bikes in Pakistan under the brand “TAILG”.

The two companies signed a Memorandum of Understanding in China recently, when a team led by Hi-Speed Motorcycles’ Director Operations, Azmat Ali Chisty, visited the country.

The collaboration between Hi-Speed and TAILG aims to “revolutionize” the two-wheel industry and significantly reduce traveling costs by bringing eco-friendly and innovative electric mobility solutions to the Pakistani consumer market.

TAILG claims that its bikes are incredibly economical to run compared to traditional petrol-powered bikes. Following the signing of the MoU, Hi-Speed Motorcycles has started teasing its EV bikes on its social media.

“Get ready to ride the future with Hi-Speed Razzy Motors. Our electrifying EV bikes are on the horizon. Stay tuned for the ultimate eco-friendly journey,” one of its social media posts read.

However, it is still unclear which specific models of electric bikes the company will be launching. TAILG offers a variety of electric bikes in the international market, including the Lion King model, XTM, FGYY-5000, LONGBAO, and a few more.

We are expected to get more information about the models that will be launched in Pakistan and their prices very soon.
