Govt to go tougher to make BRTC profitable: Quader

Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader

Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader yesterday said the government is going to take tough actions against all kinds of corruption and irregularities in the Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BRTC) aiming to make the institution profitable.

 “I am going to be tough regarding Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BRTC). Corruption and irregularities will not be tolerated in the institution. The new vehicles have strengthened the BRTC fleet. If you cooperate, it is possible to make the BRTC a profitable institution,” he said. Quader, also Awami League general secretary, came up with the remarks while addressing a Mourning Day discussion organized by the BRTC Sramik League (CBA) at Institution of Diploma Engineers (IDE) in the city’s Kakrail area.

The minister said BRTC would not be able to make any profit if it cannot be freed from corruption. “But we have to make it profitable as we are committed to materialise Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s dream of making the institute a profitable concern,” he added.

State Minister for Labour and Employment Begum Monnujan Sufian addressed the discussion as the special guest with BRTC Sramik League acting President Abdul Quader in the chair.
