At the meeting, State Minister for Shipping Khalid Mahmud Chowdhury said, “The ministry did well in a safe journey through teamwork during Eid-ul-Fitr.”
He said, “This time we want to make the journey of Eid-ul-Azha safer than before. Even if the ferry is disrupted due to heavy rains and floods, we have to take more responsibilities.”
He also said that the law enforcers will have to be given more surveillance to tackle unpleasant incidents in the river.
Secretary of the Ministry of Naval Affairs Md Abdus Samad, BIWTC chairman Pronoy Kanti Biswas, Commodore M Mahbub Ul Islam, Director General of Shipping Directorate Commodore Syed Ariful Islam, Commander of Coast Guard Dhaka Zone Rezaul Hasan, Deputy Commissioners of different districts, Police Super, Launch owner and Marine worker leaders were present at the meeting.
