Transport leaders demand ending police harassment on roads

The leaders of Bangladesh Sarak Paribahan Malik-Sramik Oikya League (BSPMSOL) on Tuesday urged the government to stop disorder, corruption and harassment by police on roads.

They made the call while launching the BSPMSOL at Jatiya Press Club.

SM Shah Alam, convener of the organisation, said the BSPMSOL has been formed to prevent disorder, corruption and ensure security of owners and workers on roads.

“Police sergeants harass them in the pretext of checking vehicle documents and driving licenses,” he said.

BSPMSOL Member Secretary Md Ismail Hossain Bachhu demanded withdrawing “false cases” filed against transport owners and workers.

He also demanded arranging rest houses for labours at every bus and truck terminal as well as mobile hospitals for labourers injured in road accidents.

Welcoming the BSPMSOL, Prime Minister’s Media Adviser Iqbal Sobhan Chowdhury, said he will assist the organisation.

“I hope you all will play roles to stop extortion and disorder in the transport sector,” he said.

Awami League adviser Mukul Bose also welcomed the organisation and asked its members to continue their activities against corruption in the sector.
