The government has decided to keep all Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) stations open for 24 hours before and after four days of Eid-ul Fitr.
"The government is committed to ensure smooth movement of all motor vehicles during the Eid with keeping CNG stations open for 24 hours during the Eid time," Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader assured all stakeholders at a view-exchange meeting with stakeholders at Gajaria in Munshiganj today.
He hoped that the sufferings of Eid holyday-makers on roads and highways before and after the Eid-ul-Fitr would remain at tolerable level.
Quader, also Awami League General Secretary, said the government is working to ensure hassle-free journey for all during Eid-ul-Fitr.
The minister made directives to repair dilapidated highways by June 8 to lessen the sufferings of homebound people on the occasion of Eid. If required, works will be continued at night side by side with daytime, he added.
