Minister made this remark while attending the 11th meeting of the Dhaka Road Transport Coordination Authority in the city’s Nagar Bhaban in the morning.

Responding a question, minister said ‘Some of the very important persons break the traffic laws and they would be brought under legal procedure. Lawmakers should not be law breakers. We all including roads and highway police have to follow the law strictly.’
