Tarana appoints 19 female drivers at post office
Bangladesh Post Office has appointed 19 female drivers in the organisation as a part of its Mail Transportation Strengthening Project. Tarana Halim, state minister of Posts and Telecommunication Division, on Sunday handed over the keys of the vehicles to the newly appointed female drivers in a programme held at the Post Office building premises. The Mail Transportation Strengthening Project was initiated in September 2015 to ensure better mailing service. The project added 118 new vehicles to Post Office’s fleet and 33 garages to accommodate the vehicles. Among the 118 vehicles, 19 have been delivered to the Post Office already and the rest will be handed over to the organisation by June this year. Tarana said: “I was trying my best to bring in the vehicles as soon as possible when Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (Ecnec) approved the project. I also had the directive to appoint a total of 20% female drivers.” This will set an amazing example of women empowerment as the females will achieve heavy vehicle driving licences and will be eligible to drive heavy vehicles throughout the country, she added. Among others, Shyam Sunder Sikder, secretary of Posts and Telecommunication Division, and Sushanto Kumar Mondal, director general of Bangladesh Post Office, were also present at the programme.
