Freedom of movement



IT appears that Dhanmondi ceases to be a part of Dhaka after 11 pm. All the roads to Mirpur and Satmasjid roads have barriers to block traffic. This violates my constitutional right to freedom of movement within the state. In particular, it makes life very difficult for rickshaw-pullers, who are equal citizens.
I strongly urge the authorities to get rid of these nocturnal barriers to movement. We have equal right to egress and ingress in this country.
