Battery-run rickshaws can operate in Dhaka: Obaidul Quader

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has permitted battery-run rickshaws to continue operation across Dhaka city considering the overall economic situation, and the impact of skyrocketing essential commodity prices on low-income segments of the population.

Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader made the announcement on Monday noon at a discussion held to mark the first founding anniversary of Bangladesh Awami Ulama League.

He however added that the battery-run rickshaws will remain banned on 22 highways, in accordance with an earlier decision.

On Wednesday, Quader had asked the authorities concerned to take steps to halt the movement of battery-run three wheelers on the roads throughout Dhaka city.
