Vigorous operation of Motijheel Traffic to evict street hawkers

Staff Correspondent: As hawkers occupy a large portion of inadequate roads in the mega city Dhaka, public life has come to a standstill, and thousands of working hours have been wasted with a very negative impact on traffic and public movement.
The Motijheel Traffic Department has evicted hawkers from many places under its jurisdiction. In continuation of this, yesterday on June 11 at 15.00 hours from Dainik Bangla crossing to Surma Tower (IFIC, Al-Arafa Bank, Surma Tower) in the area adjacent to the sidewalk, the hawker was evicted by a massive drive of Traffic Motijheel Division. The operation led by TI Rashedul Islam.
It should be noted that the common people and pedestrians could not walk on this footpath as usual, as they used to walk along the main road, causing traffic disruptions and accidents. As a result of such operations, that apprehension has now been dispelled. Traffic was also halted. The local residents, pedestrians, general public and the conscious community applauded the operation of Motijheel traffic by DMP.
It is to be noted that the Traffic Department is making serious efforts to improve the traffic management of the capital by solving the ‘spot by spot’ problem formulated by Habibur Rahman, the Commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police, BPM(Bar) PPM(Bar). The traffic department is working tirelessly day and night with a mix of professionalism and manual labor.
Deputy Commissioner and Additional DIG of Traffic Motijheel Department Md. Mynul Hasan, requests commuters of all walks of life to nurture and observe the culture of traffic order and law abiding.”
The traffic management department is committed to providing relief to the esteemed city dwellers, he added.
