Separate lane for VIPs unconstitutional TIB

first_imgLogo of TIBTransparency International Bangladesh (TIB) has expressed concern over the government move to earmark separate lane in the capital for law enforcing agencies, emergency services and very important person (VIP).”TIB is deeply concerned over the government move to allocate separate lane in the capital for law enforcing agencies, emergency services and very important person [VIP]. It will be a violation of the constitution,” said TIB executive director Iftekharuzzaman in a statement on Tuesday.The statement went on to say, “It will be discriminatory and tantamount to misusing power at the highest level.”Citing media reports, he said the cabinet division has recently sent a proposal to the road transport and highway division to set aside separate lane in the capital for the VIPs.Demanding withdrawal of the proposal immediately, Iftekharuzzaman pointed out that the constitution ensures equal rights for every citizen of the state irrespective of religion, creed, and caste.TIB also called illogical the cabinet division’s argument that VIPs often move on the wrong side, from the opposite direction, and that’s why a separate lane should be earmarked for them.Iftekharuzzaman said the influential quarter will be encouraged to exercise unethical practices and the public sufferings will increase if the proposal is materialised.last_img read more
