‘Draft Road Transport Bill can still be amended’

Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader yesterday said the draft Road Transport Bill which was recently approved by the Cabinet can still be amended, reports UNB. "The Road Transport Bill was approved in principle only by the Cabinet. So, there's nothing to worry about it," he told a meeting at his ministry with intellectuals and experts on prevention of road accidents. The bill will now be placed before Parliament and then to the parliamentary standing committee concerned for scrutiny, Quader said. "I'll recommend inviting intellectuals and experts at the meeting of the standing committee for a better outcome." He said the bill will be passed in the upcoming parliament session which will be its last session.
