Kawsar Hossain, a resident of Pallabi in Mirpur. He worked in a private hospital in Banani. He had to stumble on the road to go to work. Because public transport is closed. How to get to the destination, he started the car-driver, Pathao-Uber drivers. However, he has to wait on the road for an hour to reach his workplace within his means. Eventually a few people got an autorickshaw but up to Mohakhali they had to pay 50 rupees per person. There is no end to the worries about how much it will cost to return in the evening, even if it is difficult to get to the office. Not only Kawsar, but most of the office-going working people including Nazmul, Sohag and Nafia are facing this problem. The problem was created on Monday when the government announced the closure of public transport. But all government, semi-government and autonomous institutions are open. In such a situation, the workers of the capital have suffered step by step.
Crowds of office-going people have been noticed on the roads of the capital since yesterday morning as on other days. But they have suffered due to lack of public transport. On this occasion, CNG-powered autorickshaws, rickshaws and ride-sharing motor bikers took advantage of the fare with the office-going passengers. Since the employees have to go to the office, and the bus is also closed, they have been charging higher fares on that occasion, allegations have been received from the office-goers.
Reza Rahim, a private official, said he had to pay 800 rupees to go to Banasree’s office from Azimpur. But the total cost of daily commute is only 60 rupees. He said, “On the one hand, public transport is closed, on the other hand, the office is open, so the passengers are forced to go to work with higher fares.”
