He told this to the reporters after the 13th board meeting of Dhaka Transport Coordination Authority (DTCA) at Nagar Bhaban in the city on Sunday.

Quader also said the meeting has approved 64 parking spots, proposed by Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP), in the city aiming to improve car parking facility.
