Staff Correspondent: BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi termed Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's directive to collect toll on highways as anti-people.

He said, “the government is going to take such step to pick people’s pocket.”

Rizvi said this at a press conference held at BNP’s central office in Naya Paltan on Friday.

The BNP leader added, “If the toll is collected from the highway, it will be paid out of the pockets of the passengers.”

He said, “This will also increase traffic congestion and waste people's time.”
