Holiday-makers enjoying comfortable Eid journey: Quader
Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader today said the holidaymakers are enjoying comfortable Eid journey today in comparison to the last two days.
“Vehicles are moving slowly…but there are no tailbacks on the highways across the country, the home-goers are experiencing hassle-free journey ahead of Eid-ul-Azha,” he said while talking to journalists after visiting the Mohakhali Bus Terminal in Dhaka in the morning.
Though some highways are facing traffic congestion today, the Tangail- bound vehicles are caught up in long tailback mainly due to cattle transportation and inclement weather, he added.
About complaints of extra fares being charged from the home goers, Quader
said that he has no such information.
“If there is a particular complaint about collecting extra fares by
vehicles, inform us immediately as our monitoring team is working to this
end,” he said.
He said several people were arrested on charges of collecting extra fares
He urged all, including the passengers, to complain directly to the concerned authorities if anyone is found charging extra fares during the Eid journey.
