Addressing the officials, Obaidul Quader said that do not tolerate corruption. Corrupt people cannot stay anywhere in this ministry. They need to be identified and dealt with. Let Anti-Corruption Commission investigate, why not investigate. Where there is corruption, there must be an investigation. I say to all, work and reduce accidents, traffic congestion.
The road transport minister said that the number of accidents is less than before, but the death rate in accidents is increasing more than before. There is no point in denying it. Today, there are so many constructions all over Bangladesh, so many underpasses, overpasses, metrorails, Padma Bridge, tunnels are all happening.
