The Nischa founder also gave Shajahan Khan a 24-hour ultimatum

Ilias Kanchan, founder and chairman of Nirapad Sarak Chai (Nischa - We demand safe road) has urged the former shipping minister Shajahan Khan to stop spreading propaganda against his family and organization.

He made the statement at a Nischa press conference held in protest against the remarks made by the former minister at Dhaka's National Press Club on Wednesday.

The Nischa founder also gave Shajahan Khan a 24-hour ultimatum to either provide proofs for his misleading statements or issue an apology.

Issuing a 24-hour ultimatum to Shajahan Khan, Ilias Kanchan said: "If you have the courage, show us the evidence of your claims."

Nischa chairman also welcomed Shajahan Khan to participate in a live talk show with him that the whole nation will watch and then judge who is right.

Kanchan claimed that the transport leader has spread misinformation about him, his family and the members of his organization illegally, and without any evidence.

However, replying to a query by reporters, he said he has come to fear for his life as Shajahan Khan has provoked the transport workers against him and his family.

Kanchan said Shajahan Khan spread these defamatory words to mislead the nation as well as prevent implementation of the Road Transport Act 2018.

Earlier on December 8, Bangladesh Road Transport Workers Federation (BRTWF) Executive President Shajahan Khan claimed that Ilias Kanchan has embezzled crores for his road safety awareness movement Nirapad Sharak Chai (Nischa).

The former minister asserted that Kanchan ran the safe road movement of his own money for the first 12 years but later received donations from foreigners and the organization's members.

Ilias Kanchan said Nischa has been registered as an NGO since December 27, 2015, to work on road safety.

He further claimed that members' donations are the only source of income for his organization. The organization does not receive donations from abroad.
