Public transports will operate at half capacity from Thursday, says the minister

Road Transport and Bridges Minister and Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader has asked everyone concerned to stay alert so that no one can indulge in any irregularities while disbursing government incentives.

“No irregularity will be tolerated in this case,” Quader said during a briefing at his official residence on Wednesday.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has announced an incentive package of Tk3,200 crore for the low-income people hit hard by the ongoing lockdown restrictions, job creation in rural areas, workers of tourism and transport sectors and day-labourers, the Awami League general secretary said.

He said there should be maximum attention to make sure that the real victims are enlisted for the incentives.

Of the total amount of the incentive package, Tk2,200 crore will come from the national coffer.

Another amount of Tk1,000 crore has been earmarked to provide loans in the tourism sector with government subsidies, said Quader.

He said the initiative of easing restrictions was taken to ease the sufferings of people during the Eid journeys, ensure financial safety of the working people and maintain the pace of the national economy.

Public transport

Public transports will operate at half capacity across the country from Thursday as the lockdown restrictions have been relaxed, he said.

The minister hoped that the transport owners’ and workers' organizations would operate their vehicles in compliance with the Covid-19-related conditions, like hygiene rules, keeping the current pandemic situation in mind.

Quader warned that legal action will be taken against transport owners if they collect extra fare and do not adhere to health guidelines.
