District Bus Owners Association refrained from operating buses to all routes from Mymensingh without any declaration, causing immense sufferings to commuters.
No bus ran from Maskanda and Patgudam bus stands to any route since 3:30pm on Monday.
Jhumon Mia, one of the drivers of Ena Paribahan, said, “Owners told us not operate vehicles. So, we stopped. We surely will return to the roads when owners ordered us. We have nothing to do, but listening their words.”
A transport worker named Abul Fazal said, “We get less passengers since BRTC buses launched here. So, owners took the decision from fear of financial loss.”
