People returning to Dhaka, pressure on Daulatdia Ghat

As offices, garment factories and businesses in Dhaka have reopened, thousands of people are returning to the capital from south-western region of the country. Daulatdia Ferry Ghat of Rajbari was teeming with Dhaka-bound people from Tuesday morning.

Passengers are huddled on the ferry without maintaining social distance. For their livelihoods, passengers from different districts of the south-west are coming to Daulatdia Ghat by buses.

BIWTC's Aricha office DGM Zillur Rahman said “As offices, garment factories and businesses in Dhaka have reopened, people are returning to Dhaka as a result it has increased the pressure on Daulatdia Ghat".

“We are operating 17 ferries but due to heavy current it is taking more time to cross the river”, he added.
