Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today asked the authorities concerned to bring drivers under a dope testing system.

"We need to know whether those who are driving [vehicles] use drugs. They need to undergo dope tests. This is absolutely essential. You have to do this," she said while addressing a discussion through a videoconference from her official residence Gono Bhaban.

The Road Transport and Bridges Ministry arranged the virtual event at the auditorium of Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) on the occasion of the National Road Safety Day 2020.
