SSC examinees, patients suffer
SSC candidates who attended the biology exam suffered a lot because of the sudden strike. Although most of the bus services in and around the city remained suspended in the morning, some local bus services were seen plying short distances on the roads from 10am. The CNG-run auto-rickshaw drivers and the rickshaw-pullers were also charging the commuters with excessive fare. Afroza Banu, 31, along with her five-year-old son started her journey in the morning from Jirani Bazar in Savar upazila to visit her ailing sister at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH). She had to change the bus five times and take a rickshaw ride before she could finally reach DMCH while the travel cost her triple the regular fare. Usually a passengers has to pay Tk60 to reach DMCH from Jirani Bazar using any of the three direct bus services available on the route. But Afroza counted Tk150 for the travel on Tuesday. “I am wondering what kind of transport strike is this when some buses are still on the road and charging the passengers more than double the fare,”Afroza said. “Like me there are so many people who have come out from their houses for an emergency. Once I felt like going back home, but my sister was admitted to hospital, and I was to buy the medication and food for her,” she added. Asked to explain why they have been charging excessive fare, most of the bus drivers and helpers shied away.
