Bangladesh Jatri Kalyan Samity says during 2015-2022 at least 61,616 people were killed and 1.12 lakh injured in 44,171 incidents
The upcoming national election means that the travelling woes for homeward bound people this Eid-ul-Azha will be tied to the government’s image issue.
At least 328 people were killed and 565 injured in 304 road accidents in 15 days (from April 15 to 29) during the Eid rush, Bangladesh Jatri Kalyan Samity said
The government has asked the non-government organisations working on road safety to inform the authorities concerned before releasing data on road crashes and casualties.
For the first time, the road transport and bridges ministry has made public the statistics of road accidents and casualties for a particular month, January.
Bangladesh Jatri Kalyan Samity has demanded the government immediately repeal its decision of hiking fuel prices to ease the already-existing sufferings of the people created by the price hikes of essentials.
