Commuting in this mega city is a big trouble and there is no one to care about it. But State Minister for Information Tarana Halim has decided to go to office and return home by taking public transport to feel the pinch of travelling like commoners.

On Wednesday, Tarana Halim returned to her Gulshan residence from her office at the secretariat in a public bus.

Her Public Relations officer Enayet Hossain said she has taken the decision to feel the pains of hazardous travel that the general people endure every day while commuting.

"People always complain that MPs and ministers don't face traffic jams. People expect the ministers also commute by public transport at least once. Tarana Halim has decided to travel to and from her office every day by taking public transport to feel their feelings," Enayet added.

He was, however, quick to say that the state minister will use official vehicle for attending important official works, reports UNB.
