‘I’m not going to claim that I’m a perfect person’
Whoever gets elected next, can amend laws if necessary
Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Sunday said the schedule for the 12th national polls will be published in the middle of November or earlier.
He said this at a meeting to mark National Road Safety Day in Dhaka.
Regarding the amendment of the Road Transport Act, Obaidul Quader said: “Is there time to change the law? We’ll have to wait until January. Whoever comes to power in the elections in January can consider additions, subtractions, and amendments if necessary.”
The road transport and bridges minister added: “I’m not going to claim that I’m a perfect person,” Mistakes can happen. I tried to do well, I tried to reduce corruption. We have been able to stop the tender trade, and the transfer trade.”
Since 2017, October 22 has been celebrated as National Safe Roads Day every year.
This year’s theme of the day is “Ain Meney Sorokey Choli, Smart Bangladesh Gori” (Let us follow the law on road and build a smart Bangladesh).
