Responding to commuters' complaints, the Sindh Governor also announced the installation of fans at the station. The Governor's initiative was highly appreciated by the passengers present. The Governor instructed the relevant authorities to take necessary action promptly.

The Governor further said that the completion of major projects in the city, including the Circular Railway, Red, and Yellow Lines, is vital. He emphasized that public-interest projects should not be politicized as they directly benefit the public. He emphasized that just as an emergency has been imposed on education, similar urgent measures need to be taken here to address the city's transportation issues. All stakeholders will have to sit together to resolve this issue.

He added, "I am the representative of the federal government. We will resolve issues under the coordination of the federal and provincial governments." Recommendations were also sought from the SIDCL during the meeting last week on how to improve these projects with the federal government.
