ACC’s sudden drive at BRTA finds huge irregularities

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has found huge irregularities in its sudden drive at the Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) office in the capital’s Ikuria, Keraniganj, reports BSS.

“We must have to ensure uninterrupted services to the people after making the BRTA free from corruption,” Director General (admin) of the ACC Mohammad Munir Chowdhury told newsmen after completing the drive.

He has warned of taking tougher action against BRTA personnel if they will fail to free the office from brokers.

A nine-member team of the ACC conducted the drive following allegations of taking bribe for giving registration and fitness of various vehicles. The allegations have been received by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) hotline 106.

The ACC team in its drive found that huge numbers of old and out of order mishuks (tempos) of 2002 have been illegally converting to CNG (Compressed Natural Gas).

It has also found that fabricated chassis numbers had been fixing up at some of the tempos to get fitness certificates and registration of those vehicles.

The ACC personnel have later distributed anti-graft stickers and leaflets among the people who have been queued at the BRTA office, aimed at creating awareness among them.
