No illegal settlement on roads: Quader

Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader yesterday directed the authorities concerned to remove all the illegal establishments along roads and highways across the country within seven days. The minister came up with the directive while visiting Dhaka-Tangail Highway at Chandra in Gazipur.

"We have decided to free the roads of the illegal establishments. The work will start across Bangladesh within seven days after the notice," said Quader. He hoped that if the government succeeded in removing illegal establishments and unauthorised parking, then discipline will be restored on the roads.

Talking about Jatiya Oikya Front's demand for arranging a fresh election, Quader said, "It's ridiculous to raise question about the 11th parliamentary election which got global recognition." He also urged the Oikya Front MPs elect to come to parliament to talk about their demands. Democratic countries across the globe, even Pakistan, have recognized the election, he said.

"In such a situation, Oikya Front's demand for fresh polls is just ridiculous," Quader further said.The minister was accompanied by Dhaka Divisional Superintending Engineer Sabuj Uddin Khan, Additional Deputy Commissioner of Gazipur Alam Maksud Chowdhury, Executive Engineer Saifuddin, Gazipur Additional Police Superintendent Aminul Islam and several Local Administration officials.
