Road, Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Thursday said the main priority of his work will be to bring back discipline in road and transport sector.
"Everything has to be accomplished in the beginning like 'killing cat' on the very first night," said Quader while talking to reporters at the secretariat. Quader, also general secretary of Awami League, said, "No project will yield good results, no matter how many are taken, keeping the road and transport sector chaotic. If there's no discipline, there's no benefit from taking mega projects. So, discipline must be restored."
The minister said he sat with the officials of the ministry and gave directives to all concerned. "It's the directive of the Prime Minister."
Responding to a question how he will restore discipline, Qauder said he has his own techniques to bring discipline in transport sector and there are some general ideas which are known to all.
Small vehicles create chaos on highways and motorcycles have become a new threat, he said adding that motorcycles ply roads recklessly outside the capital, he said.  
"These problems need to be fixed. But the work is not so easy. If we all work together, it would be possible to solve the problems," said Quader.     -UNB
