The court is likely to hear the petition on Wednesday

A writ petition has been filed with the High Court seeking its directives to make the Road Transport Act 2018 effective.

Advocate Manzill Murshid, on behalf of Human Rights and Peace for Bangladesh, filed the petition on Tuesday, reports UNB.

The hearing is likely to be held on Wednesday at the bench led by Justice Moyeenul Islam Chowdhury.

Manzill said the Road Transport Act was enacted on October 8, 2018 and it was supposed to be made effective by issuing a gazette notification.

On April 10 this year, he said, a legal notice was sent to the authorities concerned asking them to issue a gazette within seven days.

However, the government is yet to do so.

The petition also sought directives to issue a rule asking the government to explain why the authorities concerned should not be ordered to issue a gazette notification to make the act effective.

The secretaries concerned to the president, Prime Minister’s Office, the ministries of public administration, home, law and road transport and bridges, and the Cabinet Division have been made respondents.
