Suranjit concerns over frequent accidents
Suranjit concerns over frequent accidents


Awami League leader Suranjit Sengupta expressed concerns over the recent road accidents. He called for strict implementation of existing laws to prevent such accidents.



Suranjit was addressing a discussion at Shilpakala Academy in the capital on Sunday. “It is not acceptable that more than 6,000 people die every year in road accidents,” the Awami League Advisory Council member said.



“The people are concerned over the death of seven people near Bangabandhu Bridge, we are concerned too. Highways have to be safe.”  Claiming that the laws to prevent accidents are not being implemented, the former minister said, “Laws must  be implemented without any excuse.”



The passenger welfare platform ‘Jatri Kalyan Samity’ published its statistics on road accidents, compiled from newspapers, on Saturday that said around 8,500 people have died in road accidents in Bangladesh during 2015.



Earlier on Sunday Land Minister Shamsur Rahman Sherif’s son Sharif Rana died in a tragic road accident on the Bangabandhu Bridge. In another accident, former BNP MP Jahan Panna’s husband died in Rajshahi, according to bdnews24.com. -Mithun
