Things that make you to Think
Khairul Kuader and Abid Azad look into the sufferings of homebound people due to overpricing of bus tickets just before Eid.
With Eid-ul-Fitr only two weeks away, homebound people are going to face enormous trouble getting home with the excessive price of ticket; the tickets will cost almost twice their usual price as an ‘Eid special’. This is sadly the reality that homebound people have to suffer through before every Eid, as was found at Sayedabad, Mohakhali and Gabtoli – three most important bus terminals in the capital.
Ahead of Eid, ticket selling at the bus terminals and train stations is going to become intensely alarming, all due to the lack of monitoring on the government’s part, according to an intelligence source.
