Gonoforum and Jatiya Oikyafront chief Dr Kamal Hossain on Saturday said that the country’s transport sector must be freed from political influence to ensure people’s security on roads.
“Political influence not only helps corruption spread but also make people indifferent to obey law which ultimately hampers the rule of law. This is applicable for all sectors, including the transport one,” said Dr Kamal, also an eminent jurist and the drafter of the country’s constitution.
He came up with the remarks while talking to reporters at a press conference at Jatiya Press Club in Dhaka.
He said the main reason behind the prevailing anarchy in the transport sector is lack of good governance.
“It’s necessary to ensure impartial and effective enforcement of laws to ensure good governance,” said the veteran.
He also added that police must enforce laws so that the goal for which these are framed can be achieved. But if the police are influenced by anybody then they become weaker, and deviate from the rule of law.
