He expressed deep shock at Abrar’s death
Gono Forum President Dr Kamal Hossain on Wednesday blamed the government's apathy for the growing road fatalities in the country.
In a statement, he said people are being regularly subjected to unnatural deaths on the roads, as the government fails to take any effective steps in this regard.
Dr Kamal said students had placed some demands during their movement for 'safe roads', nine months back.
"A few demands were accepted verbally. But the road accidents have increased due to indifference of the government and the authorities concerned to this end," he added.
He regretted that brilliant student Abrar Ahmed Chowdhury died during the traffic week, forcing the students to take to the streets once again.
The Gono Forum chief said the students' movement is the manifestation of their anger against the mismanagement on roads.
He expressed deep shock at Abrar’s death.
Abrar Ahmed Chowdhury, a student of Bangladesh University of Professionals, died in front of the Bashundhara Gate on Tuesday morning after being hit by a bus.
