The 2-Stroke Evil


Although, concern for thousands being unemployed by banning 2-stroke rickshaws on major roads of the city is valid in its first place, however, just imagine how this deadly fume smoke churned out by these noisy, cracky machines is affecting the health of millions.


Provided the Government gives easy loans to owners of these rickshaws for replacing these with much greener CNG ones, which actually is being done; do you still oppose the ban on these?

* Can you make out what’s written on the back of this rickshaw?…

    quite frankly – i don’t feel any pain for this ban; count the number of people suffering from breath issues due to pollution, you will be shocked – despite the whole Lahore environment is getting out of hands now. This needs to be addressed as soon as we can. Govt. should not feel and pressure from Rikhshaw Union may be a pain for commuters in start but on the other hand Govt. should also penetrate more Green CNG rikshaws to cover the gaps.

    I like 4-strokes, no noise at all. No pollution.
