Bring errant garment owners to justice

People of Bangladesh have seen hundreds of fire incidents in garment factories. They have not yet seen any of the garment factory owners being arrested and punished for their crime. Inadequate fire safety measures and carelessness of the authorities could be cited as the main reasons for all the fire incidents in the garment factories. These owners are so powerful and influential that they are hardly held accountable for any of their misdeeds or carelessness. To them, each piece of machinery is more valuable than the lives of the poor workers. Hope the government will punish them, which will be a lesson for others and will make them act to prevent such incidents in their factories.
