Uber and Careem have become popular apps in Pakistan over the past few months easing the public’s conveyance problems; however, this is probably going to change with the restrictions imposed by the Punjab and Sindh government.
People took to Twitter to express how they feel by the latest move by the governments.
Uber and Careem declared illegal in Punjab. That is one of those news when you feel the Aunty was right – YEH BIK GYI HA GORMINT.
