Communications Minister Obaidul Quader on Sunday said the government is on a serious drive to restore traffic rules and remove unfit vehicles from the city streets.
Talking to reporters after a meeting of the Road Transport Advisory Committee at his ministry, the Communication Minister also noted that they have already formed two committees in this regard.
He said a committee, headed by Local Government and Rural Development (LGRD) Secretary Manzoor Hossain, was formed to press on bringing back traffic rules on roads.
Another committee, headed by Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) chairman Nazrul Islam, was formed to remove all the unfit vehicles plying the city streets, he added.

Further steps in this regard will be taken after March 26 when the committees will file their reports, the minister said.
