People who use public transport are facing immense problem with regard to seating, especially those reserved for ladies. I myself travel by public transport and face this problem every day of the week. Seats allotted in the ladies section are too few to begin with. Moreover, the gents also have a habit of piling on in the ladies section whenever their side of the bus, that is the gents section, gets full. Due to their usurping of the ladies section, the seats for ladies are often commandeered for the whole length of the way. If this is how it's going to be, I don't know how women are supposed to travel? About time the government did something. -MADIHA ASIF, Karachi, via e-mail, April 13.
