Awami League's general secretary and Road-Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader sought the assistance of the students to bring discipline to the road by implementing the new road transport law.
The minister made this remark attending the Dr. Anwarul Abedin lecture series organized by the American International University of Bangladesh (AIUB) Permanent Campus on Sunday.
Obaidul Quader said “The implementation of the Road Transport Act 2018 will play an important role in reversing the discipline on the road. That is why everyone has to cooperate. I hope that the students of the school will also have an effective role in implementing this law.”
Highlighting the development of the Awami League government, Quader said no other government could make such development after 1975. The people of the country are also enjoying the benefits of this development, but in some places, the roads need to be disciplined in order to make visible the structural development of the government.
Regarding the agreement with India, Obaidul Quader said that the issues of India's agreement with Bangladesh are clear as daylight, not just by the BNP's eyes. Nothing to explain to BNP about the deal signed with India, he also stated.
He said that onions are being imported keeping the benefit of the country’s farmers in mind. Importing onions from abroad will not hamper the farmers of the country.
Stating that the people of the country will be able to move through the Padma Bridge in 2021, the minister said that 74 percent work of the Padma Bridge has been completed. I hope the rail and buses will be operational in 2021,” the veteran politician stated also.
