Public transport on the highway is closed on Sunday, the third day of the severe lockdown. As a result, both the ghats of the country’s busiest and most important Daulatdia-Paturia route are very empty. However, the crowd of ordinary passengers coming to Daulatdia Ghat from different districts and sub-districts of the south-west in different ways was eye-catching. At this time, some people related to the ghat said, the pressure of passengers and vehicles is more at night. The scene can be seen on the spot on Sunday from 12 noon to 2 pm at Daulatdia Ghat.
It is learned that on the third day of the strict ban, the Dhaka-bound passengers were under pressure in the Daulatdia Ghat area of Goaland Upazila from Sunday morning. Passengers came to Daulatdia Ghat in various vehicles including motorcycles, autorickshaws and three-wheelers. Many passengers were seen walking on the Dhaka-Khulna highway to reach the ferry terminal. They have to deal with police obstructions on the way. Besides, even after reaching the wharf, they are facing the wrath of the magistrate.
