Transport crisis ends as vehicles ply normally: Quader


DHAKA, Nov 22, 2019 (BSS) – Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader today said the problems created in the transport sector due to strike have already been resolved as all types of vehicles are moving normally in the capital and its adjacent areas.

“The transport crisis caused by enforcement of strike across the country has already been resolved through discussions … all sorts of vehicles started to move normally in the capital and its adjacent areas,” he told the journalist while replying a query during a visit to the city’s Suhrawardy Uddhyan to see the overall preparations for holding the 7th national congress of the Jubo League.

If there is any still any inconsistency in the transport sector, it would be normal from today, said Quader, also a general secretary of the ruling Awami League (AL).

Regarding selection of city unit leadership of the Jubo League, the ruling party leader said, “The committee won’t be declared without holding conference. The new Jubo League committee will take steps to declare the organization’s Dhaka city north and south committees after the council.”
