The Punjab Bike Scheme, an initiative to promote eco-friendly transport in Punjab, has been canceled due to low-mileage e-bikes and concerns over battery theft. This decision has caused angst among students in Punjab, who are eagerly waiting for the chance to buy petrol bikes. The government's decision to cancel the scheme has raised doubts about the true intentions of the Punjab government.

Why was the e-bike program cancelled?

Maryam Nawaz Sharif, the Chief Minister of Punjab, has decided to delay the distribution of e-bikes due to low availability and fear of battery theft. Despite the green initiative, the distribution of electric bicycles is not suitable for the current situation, as many students express their disappointment and expect clean transportation. The scheme is expected to be revived in the coming years, ensuring a more sustainable and efficient transport option for both male and female students.
