The Jatri Kalyan Samiti has demanded that 5,000 new high-quality buses be brought under a single company under government management by removing the rickety buses of the capital. The members of the organization raised this demand in a press conference at Dhaka Reporters Unity on Saturday afternoon

The secretary general of the association, Mozammel Haque Chowdhury, said that the government is talking about taking the country as a least developed country by 2026. Despite the development of modern communication systems like metrorail, elevated expressway, there is no significant role in public transport.

Mozammel Haque said that 65 percent of people in the country travel by public bus. But most of them are unfit and dirty Which is not in any developed country.

General Secretary of Passenger Welfare Association said, on the one hand, just as common passengers are hostages to transport owners-workers, many bus owners are also hostages to the violence of extortionists.

The Yatri Kalyan Samiti has called for strict action against unskilled and fake licensed drivers to bring back safety on the roads with emphasis on building a smart transport system by uprooting these.
