The entire Dhaka city will be brought under closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras to get special facilities while carrying out all activities including traffic and crime control.
Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal made the remarks while addressing a grand rally of Nirapad Sarak Chai (NISCHA) as the chief at Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy in the capital on Saturday.
The minister also said, "We are taking initiative to make Dhaka a safe city and if we can do it, then we will do the same for Chattogram and Rajshahi as well."
“Everyone wants safe roads; I want that too. We need to change our mindset. We have to comply with traffic laws and we need to use seat belts and control speed on roads. However, many of us do not do it,” said Asaduzzaman Khan.
Film actor Ilias Kanchan, Founder and Chairman of Nirapad Sarak Chai said,” Our country and our people are the first priority. So, we have to abide by the traffic rules. We have set up many branches outside Dhaka, so that everyone can keep the roads safe in their respective areas.”
Kanchan further demanded the implementation of 111 recommendations of Nirapad Sarak Chai in this regard.
